Face of Christ Antique Religious Art Print - $44

Behold the "Veil of Saint Veronica" from the year 1649, often referred to simply as "The Face of Christ", the image having been inspired by the religious relic of the same name, thought to still be housed in the Basilica of St. Peter.

This amazing copperplate print was carved by master engraver Claude Mellan using a single continuous line that spirals out from the tip of the nose. He achieved variations in form and shading by varying the thickness of the lines and the width between them. One could stare for hours at this marvel of engraving just following the single line around and wondering where, if ever, the artist lifted his tool or how he maintained such a consistent spiral. The image bears the words "Formatur Unicus Una", loosely translated from the Latin as "formed only by one".
