The creation was presented at the Cathedral of Salamanca on Thursday and will remain there until December, after which it will go on a world tour.
In Spain, they made a model of Jesus Christ with real human hair using the Shroud of Turin. The “body” is made of silicone and latex. It shows all the wounds believed to have been inflicted on the Savior when he was tortured and killed, writes the Daily Star.
José Luis Retana, Bishop of Salamanca, said that the male body in the Holy Shroud can represent “the confirmation of God’s love, which becomes flesh in Jesus Christ, who died like a villain, who does a terrible sacrifice for our salvation. There is no greater love in the world.”
Alvaro Blanco, curator of the exhibition, added that the Shroud was studied for 15 years to create the body.
“No one has dared to make such a hyper-realistic body. We dare and hope that the exhibition will be a complete success. This exhibition is a journey through the art, archeology and science of the Holy Shroud, presented together for the first time in this unique exhibition of 600 square meters,” said Blanco.
Recall that during the battle in Mariupol, the Russian invaders destroyed the building of the Art Museum named after Arkhip Kuindzhi, where the original paintings of famous artists are located.
