I have a couple of holy cards of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and on every single one
he looks... a bit too effeminate. Are there any sacred heart pictures where Jesus looks a bit more
masculine?

I so agree with your question and with Father's answer. :yes:

I was looking for a Sacred Heart to hang in my room and that was the only one I could find that I could stand. Too much of Catholic pious art (excluding modernist ugly stuff) is saccharine blah.

After I first saw that image (as your avatar, I think) I wanted to print it and hang it in my room, but when I went to try I found that my printer was broken. :cry:

I don't understand the appeal in the other Sacred Heart images. Men wouldn't like it because Jesus is portrayed in that rather feminine, saccharine way, but I also don't understand why women would like it. It's not as if women want an effeminate-looking Christ. I just find the whole thing quite puzzling.

I don't like most images of the Immaculate Heart, either, though at least in those it's appropriate for Our Lady to look feminine.

Charles Bosseron Chambers has a couple of nice ones, which I don't think are too feminine. You can find them here amongst some of his other work.

http://www.restoredtraditions.com/searc ... ers&page=2

I don't know if this site is in compliance with Norwegian copy right laws in terms of all of the stuff on it, including Chambers. I was able to order one of his Sacred Heart pictures ( http://www.restoredtraditions.com/sacre ... s_pro.aspx, which was not really the one I preferred) along with a lovely one of the Immaculate Heart of Mary from Allposters a while back, though. The Sacred Heart picture I ordered has actually really grown on me. :D
