The Shroud of Turin is a Print

Spot the difference: Negative images of the Shroud of Turin (left) and a modern replica made by scientists.

The news is out. Professor Garlaschelli of the University of Pavia, has used “materials and print technologies available in the middle ages” to reproduce the Shroud of Turin. For this experiment a student’s body was covered with a cloth and then rubbed with red ochre to make the transfer of information from the body’s surface, basically an indirect method of gyotaku (also known as fish printing). Some artificial aging and holes added for affect and the scientist had made a print that he claims proves this well loved and revered relic to be fake.
