Believe It or Not: This 1649 engraving of the Veil of Saint Veronica was made with one non-stop, outwardly spiraling line.
The engraver, Claude Mellan, turned and adjusted his engraving pen -- thicker and thinner, starting at the tip of the nose (shown above) -- as he continued to rotate the plate with his other hand.
The line never stops. When you view it up close, it is just a spiral. When viewed far away, it is the face of Jesus Christ.
God Bless You -- Today and Every Day!

Let's make July 2018 "Shroud of Turin" month here at Wonders of the Bible. This post shows a commemorative post card from the 1933 exhibition of the Holy Shroud in Turin, Italy. I'll have more postings coming up. And, as always, "God Bless You Today ... and Every Day!".
