A Wonderful Personal Story and an Interesting Proposal

imageI have recently viewed the BBC/History film “The real face of Jesus?” where you appeared, and wherefrom I took the shroudstory.com link and your email. Abut April 2014 our friend has given us the photo copied from the screen from the film, form the part where the face of Jesus is presented at about 1 h 19 min of the film. Our son Jan Pawel who suffered leukemia and died on 30th of September of 2014 at the age of 7 years was seeing Jesus imagefrom the age of 4 daily (which is a story by itself). Jan Pawel told us “it is easier for me to believe in Jesus, because I see him”. When my wife showed this image to him, Jan Pawel told us that Jesus is the same, just that he has shorter hair and lots of light around him, not dark. On some other occasion Jan Pawel told us that Jesus has green eyes with a little blue. Jan Pawel reacted as a boy from a film and a book “The Heaven is Real” when he has seen the image “Prince of Peace” https://shroudofturin.files.wordpress.com/2014/11/image49.png .

imagePersonally I work on molecular imaging and process daily PET and CT images of the people and animals which we acquire in our human and small animal PET/CT scanners. All of these are 3D images, for processing of which we use PMOD, a program for biomedical image quantification. One of the useful contributions I thought of making is a CT scan of a volunteer wrapped in a cloth, possibly with a set of fiducial markers (lead small balls) on the cloth for reference. It would be a continuation of the work of G.Fanti et al. published in:  Fanti, G., et al. (2010). "Turin Shroud: Compatibility Between a Digitized Body Image and a Computerized Anthropomorphous Manikin." Journal of Imaging Science and Technology 54(5): 50503-50501-50503-50508.

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

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)

Another Video Overlay Match Up: Akiane Kramarik and the Prince of Peace

A reader writes:

There is another video overlay matchup similar to the one you posted Aug 19 [*].  You can find it at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U2AdNTKcGnc.  It was posted by the child prodigy Akiane Kramarik.

In fact, here it is, It is only 21 seconds long, just long enough to show the similarities between the shroud face and her world famous painting, Prince of Peace. It is believed that Akiane had never seen the Shroud of Turin before creating her painting.

 

The video seems to be an extract from a video by Phil Dayvault that I covered in a posting, Heaven is for Real, the Akiane Prince of Peace, the ISA Mosaic and the Shroud of Turin on April 21st of this year.

The following is from Wikipedia:

imageAkiane Kramarik (/æˈkiːænæ/; born July 9, 1994) is an American poet and artist. She is known as a child prodigy and has begun drawing at the age of four. Kramarik is world-renowned for her paintings, but especially for her piece, Prince of Peace, which was completed at the age of eight.

Akiane Kramarik was born July 9, 1994, in Mount Morris, Illinois to a Lithuanian mother and an American father. She is homeschooled.

She is primarily a self-taught painter. She states that God spoke to her when she was four years old, encouraging her to paint and draw her visions.[2] Her parents were atheistsat the time (they later converted to Christianity because of Kramarik’s paintings and visions). She started drawing at the age of four, and advanced to painting at six, and writing poetry at seven. Her first completed self-portrait sold for US$10,000. A portion of the money generated from sales is donated by Kramarik to charities. According to Kramarik, her art is inspired by her visions of heaven, and her personal connection with God. Her art depicts life, landscape, and people.

At the age of 10, she appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show and at the age of 12, on CNN.

To date, she has completed over 200 published art works, 800 literary creations and published two best selling books.
