Veil of Veronica 1649 engraving by Claude Mellan
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.
