Large Eyes

Do my eyes look big to you? Saint Valeria Mosaic

One of many...

...unknown saints. It is said Valeria was beheaded for her Christianity; of course, like many hundreds of saints depicted in mosaics throughout Europe, there is little evidence testifying to that fact.

But that's no reason to believe that there may have been a Saint Valeria! It's just hard to have a strong devotion to a saint you don't know much about :-/
