The Shroud of Turin by AI shows what Jesus ‘really looked like’

The mystery of the Turin Shroud has enchanted generations, only shown to the world on rare occasions but now its face has been shown in crystal clear HD with the help of AI

Artificial Intelligence has revealed the clearest ever image of the Turin Shroud to show what Jesus may have looked like.

Today marks the 90-year anniversary of the first time the fabric was put on display in 400 years, drawing in crowds of more than 25,000 to the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist in Turin. The mysterious and controversial item has been claimed by some to show the true face of Jesus after it was allegedly wrapped around him after this crucifixion.

And to mark the anniversary, the Daily Star decided to put a modern spin on this ancient relic. With the help of Midjourney, you can now be met with a lifelike face of what AI thinks Jesus looks like compared to the 14 feet (4.2 metres) long original cloth.

It shows a man with long hair and a beard with his eyes open looking directly out. Part of his body can also be seen.
