Cover Story (view full-size image): The Veil of Manoppello is a semitransparent icon of the face of Christ (Holy Face). The face is visible on both sides (front–back) and, depending on the lighting and observation conditions, shows differences in its anatomical details. It is a linen fabric consisting of very thin threads with thicknesses of about 0.1 mm, separated by distances even double these thicknesses, so that about 42% of the Veil is empty space. The fibers constituting the linen threads may have been cemented by starch. Such a structure causes the medium to be translucent. The problem of digital image restoration has also been tackled, since the Holy Face is deformed due to distortions of the meshes of the Veil, also caused by the shear yielding of the very fine structure of the fabric.
