Jesus Print

I bought a print of Jesus at a local antique store.  It's kind of dark & painful looking.  A little research revealed that it's called Veronica's Veil.   It also explains that the eyes sometimes appear to look at you.  I never noticed this, and with close inspection did notice the "changing" eyes!  This, however, is extremely hard to photograph. 

The name of this print intrigued me, so I sought more info!  It's an interesting story, you can read it at

So now you've seen it, and read about it.  What do you think?  Please leave some comments.  I'm totally comfortable with this in my home. I like the dirty, rustic, tattered look.  But, I wonder if someday my kids will remember it hanging there & talk about the eyes!

Check out other questionable buys at junker newbie, I've linked to the Would You Buy It Wednesday #10.


  1. I agree it is slightly creepy... but I would purchase it and hang it up, or give it to my sister who has a collection of religious prints. It's very intriquing and I enjoy things like that!

  2. Yes, I would buy it. I like the mystery feel to it.
