Shown above is a picture of what the shroud of Turin looks like when it is completely stretched out to its full length of 14 feet 3 inches (4.4 Meter) and width of 3 feet 7 inches (1.1 Meter).
These include Nyoscyamus aureus, Artemisia herba-alba and Onosma syriacum. Image on the Shroud The shadowy image on the shroud is, of course, its most unique and enigmatic feature.
It displays the complete dorsal and frontal image of a severely abused and crucified individual of Semitic characteristics who was laid on the proximal portion of the cloth with the distal portion folded over the head and extended over the body thus creating, through some as yet unexplained chemical or physical process, two "head to head" images of the back and front.
What Jesus really looked like may not be as in the portraits of Jesus we see everyday.
The real Jesus face and the best picture of Jesus is the photo of Jesus we get from the miracle image on the burial clothes of Jesus known as the Shroud of Turin.
