Shroud Of Turin


Shroud of Turin Picture


This imprint here shows a faint face image of a man who believes to be Shroud of Jesus. This Shroud of Turin picture show only how small the shaded difference between the light and dark values of the imprint is. For this very reason the human eyes can only perceive the features of a human face globally, and therefore, cannot distinguish the fine details.

In this photographic negative of the Shroud we can clearly notice that the shading and light effects are evidently reversed if compared to the normal photographic negative we normally see.

Full Shroud of Turin

The first photo of the full Shroud of Turin was taken in 1898. It show the surprising feature that the image on the negative was clearer than the positive image.

The Shroud is rectangular in shape, measuring approximately 14.4 x 3.6 feet (4.4 x 1.1 meter). The cloth is woven in a herringbone twill, which composes of flax fibrils entwined with cotton fibrils.

From this full Shroud of Turin photo we can see that the image bears the image of a front and dorsal view of a man who’s hands are folded across the groin. The two view are aligned along the mid-plane of the body and pointing in opposite directions. From this image we can see the head nearly meeting at the middle of the cloth.
