The Face in the Shroud – True or Not, Still Fascinating

Face in the Shroud

I had a chance to sit down and watch the History Channel’s “The Real Face of Jesus?” and I must admit, I’m impressed with how they presented this controversial subject. It presented both views of “real” and “fake”, but spent most of the time showing the technology and methods used by the graphic artist, Ray Downing, and his group at Studio MacBeth, to develop the images.
As an engineer, I could appreciate the amount of work it took to “pull” the image data out of the shroud. The sheer number of man hours speaks for the complexity of this project.
If you haven’t seen the show yet, I do recommend it.
