Shroud of Turin created by famous artist ?

The famous shroud believed to depict the image of Christ may have been made by medieval artist Giotto.
Controversy has surrounded the authenticity of the shroud for years, alleged to be the burial cloth of Jesus the shroud has been carbon-dated to the 13th-14th century. Now a new claim by Italian art expert Luciano Buso suggests the original shroud may have deteorated so badly that medieval artist Giotto was tasked with producing a copy.
The Shroud of Turin was made by medieval artist Giotto, it was claimed yesterday. The 14ft length of fabric, said to be the burial cloth of Christ, bears a faint image of a man and appears to be stained by blood.

If I recall several carbon dating were done (none of which came identical depending on who funded the dating), some analyses of the tissues samples were done suggesting a middle Eastern linen, and also some research was done on some pollen found on the shroud. Doesn't prove a thing. The shroud represent a man who's about 6' tall, whereas from what we know of JC, he was about 4'8" to 5' tall... Did he stretch somehow? Furthermore, the shroud shows a distinct dotted pattern around the neck. To my knowledge, there was no ropes or anything sharp around JC's neck. I never stated it was Jesus Christ... [More]

scientists want another sample.....i hope it was not the shroud of Jesus.... we will have a cloned Jesus soon if it is authentic. the church is right to keep it away from those people.

Wait people are still debating this thing? Check this out. These are flat globes. You'll notice how the shape of the globe is mauled because a three dimensional object can't just be translated to a flat surface and hold the original shape. The same would occur if you tried to transfer the human body onto a flat surface. The only way you could make a death shroud like that look human would be to lay it in the exact way it was when the person was laying under it holding it up.

If anyone would like to see the best documentary on the image on the shroud should view "The Real Face of Jesus" on the National Geographic Channel. This image is a negative which on its own would be difficult to fake. In addition, the image on the shroud contains 3 dimensional data encoded in the image. This would be nearly impossible to accomplish today much less in the 14th or 15th century. I really have no horse in this race since I do not worship the shroud. I would just like to see the scientists that "debunked" the shroud during their first examination will admit that mistakes were made... [More]

Who wouldn't want to claim the artwork as their own? Think of the media attention they would get? And if they are already an established artist, it could help them sell more of their artwork

was led to believe that this was actually the very first photograph taken and developed, and was the work of Da Vinci. Sure I watched a 90 minute tv special on this, and only just last year.
