Is Giovanni Battista della Rovere Depiction Accurate?

clip_image001Stephen Jones writes in 2. What is the Shroud of Turin?:

This aquatint print accurately[1] depicts from the information on the Shroud of Turin how Jesus’ body was laid on the bottom half of the Shroud and then the top half was taken over His head and overlapped at His feet.

How do we know this that this is accurate? We have the note, but . . .

1. Except that it wrongly shows Jesus’ right hand on top of His left. (Wilson, I., 1998, "The Blood and the Shroud: New Evidence that the World’s Most Sacred Relic is Real," Simon & Schuster: New York NY, p.137).

Maybe an explanation is coming in another posting.
