Beyond LUWU and LOTTO

Colin has an interesting piece on his blog. Unfortunately due to his unconventional way of posting, what should have been, by itself, a posting is an unrelated addendum to a different topic. You will need to go to his posting, Might John P.Jackson have been right in thinking the frontal and dorsal images of the Man on the Turin Shroud are subtly different? Different imprinting configurations ("LOTTO" v "LUWU")? and scroll down, way-way down, until you see a picture of a man and his wife.

What does Colin see that is 3D in this?  He asked the question, not me. He doesn’t answer. He shows us a picture but I see nothing. Am I supposed to?

Purpose of exercise: medieval (and modern folk too) are quite happy to take their brass rubbings, and see them for what they are – negative replicas that have an unusual quality, no longer life-like, but interestingly different. Few if any will feel a need to do what I have just done, using 20th/21st century  technology, simply to get more life-like images of the original subjects.

Could have fooled me. . . but I had my morning coffee. CLICK HERE to see quite a few brass rubbings, both negative and positive.

  1. An amazingly comprehensive collection of brass rubbings on the Google site. But none could be mistaken as being taken from a real human person. They are all too clearly taken from an inorganic template. That is what sets the TS image apart. It might be argued that the TS image could have been taken from a template. But even more so it can be more strenuously argued that it was not. That is not the case with the rubbings, which all too clearly have an inorganic origin.

    1. If you didn’t find the truth yet, I guess you gotta keep searching, until all other options are excluded. The Search is probably part of the fun stuff and teases the brain, but maybe you have to be in a state of denial to pursue it.

  2. 1-“In the paper “Correlation of Image Intensity on the Turin Shroud with the 3-D Structure of a Human Body Shape” written by Jackson, Jumper and Ercoline in 1984, they estimated that he areas of direct-contact between the cloth and the back of the body were covering a total surface of ≈ 2800 cm2 at the time of the image formation, while on the front side, they were only covering a total surface of ≈ 1100 cm2”

    This could be a good start to discuss wether “might John P.Jackson have been right in thinking the frontal and dorsal images of the Man on the Turin Shroud are subtly different”

    2-What does Colin see that is 3D in this?

  3. Looks like Colin learnt brass rubbing at Westminster Abbey, like me. Very nice, it is like entering the Gothic world, but nothing that could be called 3D.
