(SALEM) The mysterious and controversial Shroud of Turin has been in the Cathedral of Turin since the 16th century. It has been examined, photographed, threatened by fire, and disputed about for centuries. Some believe it to be the work of Leonardo da Vinci or at least to have some symbolic connection with several of his famous paintings with their hidden symbols. 

Recent research by Ace Knight out of Boston, MA, has discovered some things on a digital replica of the Shroud that makes Leonardo’s connection to it even more plausible: one may be Leonardo’s seal: a three-dimensional face staring back at the viewer and another image that appears to show da Vinci mirroring himself. The face found on this digital shroud is more vivid than the one scientists and scholars are studying. One might ask, what are these images doing on a shroud that is believed by many to be the burial shroud of Jesus himself?

In this video, watch as Ace Knight carefully demonstrates that the style, technique, and pattern of the imagery found in Leonardo’s paintings are echoed on the Shroud and that they look like pieces of the puzzles found in much of da Vinci’s work. Ace’s investigation of the Shroud is both fascinating and thought-provoking; an edifying addition to his recent catalogue of work.
