What Did Jesus And Mary Look Like?

“The Blessed Virgin had auburn hair, dark eyebrows, fine and arched, a very high forehead, large downcast eyes with long, dark lashes, a straight nose, delicate and rather long, a lovely mouth around which played a most noble expression, and a pointed chin. – Description of Our Lady from The Life of Jesus Christ and Biblical Revelations, (Vol. I, page 198) by Anne Catherine Emmerich.

Below is an image of Our Lord, deduced from the Shroud of Turin, and a picture of Our Lady of Czestochowa. The latter’s legends trace the icon’s origin to Luke the Evangelist, who painted it on a cedar table top from the Holy Family house.

Note the length of the noses and the length of the faces.
