Holy Face of Mary

I finished the commissioned painting of Our Lady and delivered it to the client. Here it is, in the mat she provided for it.

It was a challenge filling out and making colored the faint image from the Pieta Prayer Book. What frustrated me, however, is the book says it was drawn by an Italian mystic, but it doesn't say who, or when, or give any information more specific than that! And I couldn't find the image anywhere else but the Pieta Prayer Book. Practically everything in there is private revelations--I hope it was an approved one! If you know anything more about the image, do let me know!
