Turin Shroud.

First came to light in 1354 when it was deemed a fake. Later it was displayed as Christ’s burial shroud.
The image upon the shroud is more like a photographic negative.
Carbon-dating of material samples gave a date between 1260 and 1390. This has been contested.
So what is it?
Tests, a few years ago, on plant material (nothing to do with The Shroud) that was ‘pressed’ as they used to do with leaves or flower-heads’ in books, reveals images, on books pages, that have depth as well as being simple two dimensional images.
The Shroud could be similar; may have wrapped a wooden statue (of Christ?) and retained, over the years, that image. This explains ‘blood’, ‘thorns’, ‘wounds’, depicted (somewhat) on The Shroud.
