3D image of Shroud of Turin man: This is what Jesus looks like!

In 2015, the scientific unit of the police force in Rome, Italy, used reverse aging software to generate the face of what the man in the Shroud of Turin would look like as a 12-year-old boy. (See “The angelic face of Jesus as a 12-year-old boy”)

He is breathtakingly beautiful.


Now, a professor of mechanical and thermal measurements at the University of Padua, Dr. Giulio Fanti, has created a 3D carbon copy of Jesus from meticulous measurements of the Shroud image.

It is of an “extraordinarily beautiful” man, muscular, with “regal” “majestic” features, and nearly 6 feet tall — 7 inches taller than the average man in the Mediterranean region at the time.

Maria Teresa Martinengo reports for La Stampa (Google Translate), March 20, 2018 that Giulio Fanti leads a team of scientists who have studied the Shroud of Turin for years with the most sophisticated technologies available to science.
Based on the scientists’ measurements of the image on the Shroud, the master sculptor Sergio Rodella created a statue in plaster.

Professor Fanti explains:

“Christian tradition believes that the image that is seen on the Shroud is that of the crucified Jesus. And now science is of this opinion too. For years, using the most sophisticated 3D technologies, we have studied  the image left by the body on the sheet. And the statue is the final result.

This statue is a life-size, three-dimensional representation of the Man of the Shroud, based on the millimetric measurements obtained from the shroud in which the body of Christ was wrapped after the crucifixion.

On the Shroud I counted 370 scourge wounds, without taking into consideration the lateral ones, which are not imprinted into the Shroud because it enveloped only the front and back of the body. We can therefore hypothesize Jesus suffered a total of at least 600 scourges. Moreover, the three-dimensional reconstruction has allowed us to reconstruct that at the time of death, the man of the Shroud has slumped to the right because His right shoulder was dislocated in such a severe way as to damage the nerves.

According to our studies, Jesus was a man of extraordinary beauty (“bellezza straordinaria”). Long-limbed, but very robust; almost six feet tall, while the average height of the time was around 5′ 5″; with a regal and majestic expression.

We therefore believe that we finally have an accurate picture of what Jesus was like on this earth. From now on, it will no longer be possible to portray His image without taking this work into account .”

No. If the man executed to make the image on the Shroud is of the exceptional appearance this team of scientists claims, then why was Judas paid 30 pieces of silver to point Jesus out to those arresting Him? Jesus conducted His ministry in a very public manner, so His appearance was known to thousands including those paying Judas his price. The only consistent with Scripture solution is that Jesus looked much like the average Jewish man in Roman occupied Judea roughly 2,000 years ago. The unfortunate man whose image is on the Shroud is most likely a victim of… Read more »

Ridiculous foolishness! The Bible clearly states Yeshua was not handsome. ISA 53:2 “For He shall grow up before Him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground. He hath no form nor comeliness, and when we shall see Him, there is no beauty that we should desire Him. ” He was from Galilee NOT European with the sharp Anglo features shown on the fake shroud. Would G-D leave an image for people to give devotion or worship to after what happened with the snake on the pole? I think not. Come out of Babylon (RCC)!… Read more »

Great work!
Also, the radiation theory is most compelling, explaining the burnt in image on the cloth without catching fire.

Here’s what’s wrong with the shroud of Turin man theory, the Bible says His beard was pulled out, it also says there were two linens , one for the head and one for the body. So it may have been someone else but it wasn’t Jesus. Also in 1 Corinthians 7 and 14 says it is a shame for man to have long hair.

I’ve believed the Shroud of Turin to be the real burial cloth of Christ since the first time I saw it and read about it. Time and further research and discoveries have only strengthened my belief that it is genuine. There was a documentary that came out about six years or so ago, entitled “The Real Face of Jesus”. It showcased the work of Ray Downing, an Emmy award winning 3D computer graphics artist. It was on, believe it or not, the History Channel. But I also purchased a video of it for my mom, and the one from the… Read more »

I do think it is possible, for what ever reason/s for the image of the shroud to be exaggerated. As pleasing as it may be to visualize our Savior in such an Angelic form, it does no one justice to be so ‘liberal’ in interpreting the words (such as in Isaiah:53) in which we must place our faith. After all the power of our lord is not in his physical body.

I just watched the movie, “Heaven is for Real” in which a girl drew a picture of Jesus that was verified by a boy on a different continent as the same person he saw. Can not post the movie photo here, but if you compare the pictures, they are not too different from the shroud replication. One has brown eyes, the orher blue/green, but I question how eye color could be surmised from the shroud.

It’s good that posts like these divide, at times, and do not unite, for this reason. Posts on Jesus tend to separate the sheep from the goats: The haters really come out of the woodwork. Yes, Our Lord CAN take care of Himself. But we need to defend not only His Sacred Honor, but show the world what faith we have. And this is what sends the haters into a downward spiral of rage: Irritated that we honor Christ, they become enraged at something they cannot stand. They demand that we keep our mouths shut. And why is that—so they… Read more »

Thank you for this, Dr. Eowyn! For several reasons, I arrived at Easter Sunday in an emotionally and spiritually exhausted condition this year. Your article has really helped me. And, I am very happy to see that Jim Caviezel has proven to be an amazingly accurate choice for the role of Jesus. As an artist I have long struggled with how to portray our Lord, not wanting to be presumptuous about His appearance. This is wonderful.

This wasn’t exactly photography, because the energy that left this imprint was way beyond the common energy of light. But it’s not too big a jump to call the shroud history’s first photographic negative…

Stunning depiction of our Lord Jesus as a child.
I just purchased a copy of Wilcox’ book on the Shroud.

The only real contention I’d have here is that the rendering is of a very white/caucasian looking child, and my understanding is that Christ was semitic, having tan skin, dark hair & eyes, going strictly by what is related in the NT. I don’t know if the shroud is authentic or not, personally, but then perhaps I am in the minority here in that I don’t see why it is so important to assert that it is, if it did turn out to be a work of art, what is the loss? If it did turn out to be authentic,… Read more »

It doesn’t matter to me how he looked, if he was tall if he was dark skinned, why try to put a face on him, HE WAS and HE IS, To me He is a divine being, HE, WHO TAKES AWAY THE SINS OF THE WORLD, he died for us and so from the moment he was born until he died has been a mystery and I do believe it is to be that way, no matter how much it is analyzed with modern instruments -HE WANTED IT this way so he could be EVER PRESENT TO men till the… Read more »

There is no way his hair would have been that color.

As a believer in Christ I always found the matter of the shroud to be dubious. Perhapd even a grossly explotative manipulation of the vulnerable and superstitious and idolatotory aspect of human nature. And ranked it up there with UFO stories, ghost stories, and conspiracy theories, and the like. However, if indeed the research so far upon the original shroud by relevant scientific experts and professionals is for real, then I’d be happy to accept that evidence. Although we must also consider, that as with all science and research, we sometimes find that new findings may contradict older findings, like,… Read more »
