Computer reconstructs St Valentine’s face

56

St Valentine is the patron saint of people in love. In many countries, the day of romance is 14 February – the date he is supposed to have been killed in the year 269 AD.

Brazilian designer Cicero Moraes has used computer graphics to make a reconstruction of Valentine’s face, based on human remains believed to be of the saint.

The remains are kept at St George’s Church in the city of Monselice, in the Padua province of Italy.
