Jesus Christ whose original name in Hebrew was “Yeshua” which translates to English as Joshua was first depicted centuries back.
His oldest known portrait was in Syria and dated to about AD 235, showing him as a beardless young man of authoritative and dignified bearing.
He was depicted as dressed in the style of a young philosopher, with close-cropped hair and wearing a tunic and pallium—signs of good breeding in Greco-Roman society.
He redesigned the head of Jesus to suit the depiction of a white being descending from Heaven.
As an extraordinarily successful work of Christian popular devotional art, it had been reproduced over half a billion times worldwide by the end of the 20th century.

The thornless remains have been kept in the treasury of Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris.
It survived the devastating fire in April 2019 that destroyed the church's roof and spire
