the sea heart

Entada phaseoloides
The sea heart is the seed from a giant bean pod. A seed that has travelled all over the oceans carrying the life of a tropical vine but also the hearts of men and women.
It is said that it was a sea heart that inspired Columbus to search for lands to the west.
They were good luck charms for sailors embarking on a long ocean voyage, an amulet to protect the owner from sickness and to ward off evil spirits

They can make soap, make you shit, save you from a snake bite, you can use them to make a love potion and they will act as a contraceptive at the same time.
If you rub them they will warm up like a living heart and if you let them they will make your inspiration burn.
