I wrote the following on page 40 in Looking Glass, The City God Loves:
It took a long time, but I finally figured it out that the throne could be made of sapphire. I was so excited to make this connection! When Kirk got home, we sat down on the couch and I pulled out my copy of Stained Glass. As I searched for the section on God's throne, Kirk suddenly said, "There's a face on the cover." He was sitting to my left and looking at the book cover from the side. I had never looked at the pictures from that angle. As we turned the book on its side, we suddenly saw a full-length picture of the Lord Jesus. I was completely awestruck.
I think we should begin with the Lord's face. From a distance, it looks somewhat distorted. As we have learned, Jesus suffered terribly when He died for our sins. Isaiah 52:14 says that "his appearance was so disfigured beyond that of any human being and his form marred beyond human likeness."
There is a very strong resemblance between our picture of the Lord (right) and the Shroud of Turin (left). It's truly amazing!
