Negative and Positive Face Images

In addition to reading and studying all of the information which is available in this section of the Bill's Bible Basics website regarding the Shroud of Turin, and the Sudarium of Oviedo, please also consider reading my article entitled "Faith and the Shroud of Turin" in order to gain a full perspective regarding this issue.






On the left side of this image, we see the Shroud of Turin as it normally appears to the human eye, albeit with computer enhancement. In reality, the image on the cloth is rather dim. On the right side is a photographic negative of the same Shroud. This allows us to get a better idea of what the person may have actually looked like in real life. This is because the image on the Shroud was mysteriously etched there in a negative form, just like a phototgraphic negative; so it was necessary to reverse it, in order to determine what the person who was wrapped in the Shroud, may have looked like. In other words, a negative was created of the negative on the Shroud, in order to produce a normal 'positive' image, in which light and dark contrast are situated in the right places. Despite their various endeavors to do so, modern science has yet to satisfactorily explain how the image on the Shroud was created.
