A new statue was recently unveiled by the Museum of Popes of Jesus Christ based on the markings on the Shroud of Turin.
The Shroud of Turin is a linen cloth bearing the image of a man who appears to have suffered physical trauma in a manner consistent with crucifixion. It is kept in the royal chapel of the Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist in Turin, northern Italy and goes on display every 10 years. It is believed to be the burial cloth of Jesus Christ.
Scientists believe the image on the Shroud of Turin, thought to be the burial shroud of Jesus Christ, was created by an ultraviolet “flash of light.” However, this technology was not available prior to the 20th Century.
