Using the latest 3-D computer technology, a team of digital artists have created what they claim is the real face of Jesus.
The contours of the face and body were taken from the ghostly face imprinted on the Shroud, the bloodied linen sheet said to have covered the body of Christ in his tomb.
Debate has raged for centuries about the authenticity of the Shroud. In 1988, carbon dating tests appeared to show that the material dated back to between 1260 and 1390, suggesting that it was a medieval forgery.
However, it was subsequently claimed that the results could have been distorted as the linen has been repaierd over the centuries due to water or fire damage.
