Well there are many stories as where it came from...lots of stories about it on the internet, but only one can be true and therefore all the rest is lies...but which one is correct?
More important is what it can do for you, as it IS indeed very special as it holds many secrets. Millions of people have looked and are looking at it every day, it gives support and brings peace to look into these amazing eyes, but only few (and I really mean less than a handful) have found the hidden keys ...so be invited and discover what it has to tell you. For it will - in time - reveal itself step by step. Those that have seen these keys and understood their deeper meaning have also understood that it is not for them to reveal the exceptional aspects...they are there like they are for a reason. When looking at these eyes for some minutes you will notice it is special...it has so much to tell and has it touched my to such depths that I fall silent whenever I look at it.
One connection (not a key) which is known is that the patterns in this "work" (as it is not a picture or drawing or painting...so what is it???) are identical to the marks on the Shroud of Turin (which is in fact the most studied religious artifact in history).
A tip: try not to search for keys, you will not find them, they will open the doors for you when you are ready to see them...relax and connect is important as well as awareness of what it does for you and to you. All=1
Well...you hit the Truth there...this picture holds many secrets Use it and you will find out...the eyes speak, but it is an old language that most of us have forgotten about...the language of the ... If you find time ...10 minutes a day ... to look into these eyes in a peaceful way, they will talk to you...because Saints never die...
