Son Of God . Shroud of Turin . 2010 . Hans Weishaeupl



SON OF GOD – What did Jesus look like? This question has been hotly debated for hundreds of years. During the years 2009 and 2010 the
photographer and artist Hans Weishäupl has created a photorealistic image of Jesus. His work is based on the scientific analysis and the
original proportions of the shroud of turin, so that the image reflects the results of forensic investigations. In collaboration
with Janet Riedel, Weishäupl took photographs of more than 190 individuals from different parts of the world. Taking individual body
and facial parts, Weishäupl created the image of an entirely new person, Jesus Christ the way he must have looked like. In order to
depict realistc wounds, forensic images of real injuries were used. The famous Shroud of Turin will be shown in an exhibition in the
Cathedral of San Giovanni Battista from April 2010 to May 2010.

Exhibitions of the Shroud of Turin 2010 by Hans Weishäupl will be announced shortly.
