The Holy Face, hidden from view here

Lucca, Tuscany, Italy

This is the darker Jesus on a cross brought to Lucca centuries ago. Fascinating story, and I wish
that I could have recorded the beautiful face. Be sure to see this if you find yourself in Lucca.

The title-link takes you to a page analyzing this unusual wooden sculpture and points out
the similar relative dimensions of the facial features to the face of The Shroud of Turin.

An excellent history and analysis of the "Volto Santo" (Holy Face).
