I Hope This Helps
My friend … has given me your email address.
I have tried to find the origin of the attached picture. I found it on an Internet site and I have asked the owner of the site about it, Anthony Layne, but he does not remember where he found the picture. Here is the link: http://goo.gl/FctU5r *
Do you have any knowledge about it, ie. is this from the picture formation on the Shroud?
I can of course not use it in my lessons about the Shroud without such confirmation.
A quick Google image search (with Chrome browser, right click on the image and then click on Search Google for this image) reveals four web pages that display the image. One of them is this blog in a posting earlier this year: Seeking Help To Identify an Image Called Superficiality. Readers of this blog have provided some helpful information; for instance Kelly Kearse writes:
Picture is from Baima Ballone’s book Sindone O No, 1990, Figure 34. The above photo is reversed relative to that shown in the book.
I hope this helps. Do read the comments to learn some additional information about the picture. Click on the picture to see a larger version.
