Jesus’s Face Revealed?

April 1: 3-D illustrator Ray Downing describes the process used to extract a realistic image from the Shroud of Turin.

hat did Jesus Christ actually look like?  Of course, if there ever were any portraits or sculptures made of Christianity’s founder, none have survived to the present day.  Over the centuries, the subject has been the source of great speculation and even was one of the principle issues contributing to splits within the Church; most notably, the great division between the Roman Catholic and Greek Orthodox traditions.

Well, a graphic artist has used the Shroud of Turin to establish a 3-dimensional rendering of Christ’s likeness.  The technology is similar to Microsoft’s Photosynth technology, recently developed by Microsoft Research.  And this video from MSNBC exhibits an interview with the graphics expert responsible for the work with the relic reputed to have been the robe Christ was buried in following his execution by Roman authorities between 20 and 30 A.D.
