THE BODY OF THE MAN IN THE HOLY SHROUD
The sculpture is a three-dimensional reconstruction of the Body of a man who was undoubtedly scourged, crowned with thorns, and crucified almost 2,000 years ago in Palestine. The body, stiff with rigor mortis, was modelled after the Shroud of Turin, which has been translated into an artwork that seems to come alive.
In over twenty centuries of history, nobody has ever embarked on such a venture, at first for cultural reasons, then for the very limitations of art, which in the past did not devote much attention to meticulous research. It is worthwhile mentioning that the image perfectly matches the Man of the Gospels, as it bears the signs of the beatings He suffered, the times He fell on his way to Calvary, and the different phases of His passion.
The Body of the Man in the Holy Shroud exudes an aura of calm and peace, solemn in the Majesty of death, which comes before Resurrection (MM). The work can be seen in 18 places in three different continents.
