"Saint Veronica" by Michael Genova

from 42.00

Artist: Michael Genova
Title: Saint Veronica
Medium: Acrylic and metallic leaf


The story of Saint Veronica is best known from medieval legends which identify Veronica as the woman who offered a piece of cloth to Christ on the road to Calvary for him to wipe his face on. An image of Christ’s face was imprinted upon the cloth which later became known as the veil of Veronica and was from that point on said to be endowed with miraculous healing qualities.

Veronica’s real name was most likely Berenice or Berenike and was Latinized to become Veronica. The name Veronica, however can be seen as having a very apt and interesting interpretation. In Latin, “vera” means truth and in Greek “icon” refers to an image, therefore “vera-icon”, which is very similar to Veronica, is often interpreted as meaning “true-image”. This would be a most accurate description of the veil which bears the image of Christ’s face.
