Akiane Kramarik, The Prince of Peace and the Shroud of Turin

November 18, 2014

imageimageJustin Jones, yesterday, in The Daily Beast, writes in Blessed or Cursed? Child Prodigies Reveal All:

“I wake up after I have had many dreams,” Akiane added. “I wake up and I pray, and then I see visions and I explain all those to my mom,” who would give her canvases to re-create them. They even led her to paint “The Prince of Peace,” a portrait of Jesus completed when she was ten. The model: a carpenter who showed up to her house looking for work.

“Some researches actually analyzed my work and compared the Shroud of Turin with… this painting,” Akiane told Katie Couric earlier this year. The Shroud of Turin is the alleged cloth Jesus was buried in after he was crucified. “They said it was almost 80 to 90 per cent accurate.”  (bolding emphasis mine)

    Akiane’s portrait is nice, however there is one doubt. If she “sees visions”, who or what does she see? If she saw Jesus why did she need the carpenter as a model? Was the carpenter as Jewish-looking as the Jesus she painted?

    Many people have asked me about this. They ask me about the apparent difference in appearance, most notably the shorter hair. I just tell them its proof they have barber shops and hair salons in heaven!
