Body features were identified by template matching.The face and probably also the hands are visible on the back of the Turin Shroud, but not features related to the dorsal image. Right, except he had to paint it without paint or pigment or dyes or colorants of any kind.It is hard to imagine how this could be mechanically or artistically produced.Shroudie The double superficiality of the frontal image of the Turin Shroud Giulio Fanti and Roberto Maggiolo Dipartimento di Ingegneria Meccanica, Università di Padova, Via Venezia 1, 35137 Padova, Italy E-mail: [email protected] 13 October 2003, accepted for publication 12 March 2004 Published 13 April 2004Abstract.Therefore, image processing, developed ad hoc, was necessary to highlight body features.This was based on convolution with Gaussian filters, summation of images, and filtering in spatial frequency by direct and inverse bidimensional Fourier transformations.If it is a genuine burial shroud of a 1st century victim of crucifixion, it can almost certainly be inferred that it is Jesus.
Such a thing would have implications that are simply unacceptable to many people.If it is a genuine burial shroud of a 1st century victim of crucifixion, how is it that this piece of cloth survived the grave and was not ravaged by decomposition products? I suggest alternatively reading the stories in any of the various newspapers or for a clear concise explanation read first Chemistry of the Image and then Explanation of the Backside Image. 2014: It is my opinion that this is near-definitive evidence that the Shroud is genuine. No one has come up with anything remotely capable of explaining how a painter from the Middle Ages could have faked this kind of double image, or that needed this kind of enhancement to see.From the extract: “Photographs of the back surface of the Turin Shroud were analysed to verify the existence of a double body image of a man. The other remarkable features of the shroud were sufficient IMHO, but this seems to seal the case.Keywords: image processing, very low signal-to-noise ratio, fast Fourier transform, convolution, Turin Shroud URL: org/1464-4258/6/491 DOI: 10.1088/1464-4258/6/6/001 PII: S1464-4258(04)70555-3The double superficiality of the frontal image of the Turin Shroud So, basically, these guys are stating that after running photographs of the back of the Turin cloth through lots of image processing filters and doing a bit of tweaking, they were able to discern faint blurs that bled through from the other side. He would have needed a microscope and a single fiber paintbrush thinner than a human hair.The color is within a thin carbohydrate film that is 180 to 600 nanometers thick on fibers that average 13 microns in diameter (human hair is 100 microns).
