The Legend: There are a few legends out there all emphasizing Valentine's appeal as a sympathetic, heroic and romantic figure. The one that seems to be believed the most, is the legend of an imprisoned Valentine, like the one in this sculpture! Legend has it that he sent the first “Valentine” greeting after falling in love with a young girl, possibly his jailor’s daughter, who visited him during his confinement. Before his death, it is alleged that he wrote her a love letter signed “From your Valentine”.
