The Shroud is a fake.
1 Its been carbon dated to the Middle Ages
2 The image should be stretched
3 It looks like DaVincis Self-Portrait
A certain difficulty was caused by the existence elsewhere of other Shrouds similarly impressed with the figure of Jesus Christ and some of these cloths, notably those of Besançon, Cadouin, Champiègne, Xabregas, etc., also claimed to be the authentic linen sindon provided by Joseph of Arimathea, but until the close of the last century no great attack was made upon the genuineness of the Turin relic.

I read that the way the Shroud may have been produced was through a combination of blood and sweat allowed to soak the cloth, then left for a long time. This would have produced the effect. Their theory is that it is a post-torture image of Jaques DeMolay, after he was nailed to a door by the Inquisition.

It is absolutely not a contact on body image. All images of bodies wrapped with cloth show the globe effect which looks nothing like the Shroud of Turin. It is not painted. It is a photograph using camera obscura techniques, DaVinci had info. in his notebooks on it. It explains all the anomalies. Head too small, arms and fingers too long etc. The cloth may be very old, even 1st century but that doesn't determine when the image was placed on the linen. Also the image is of a man who is not DEAD. CORPSES DON'T BLEED!!!

I fully believe in the Shroud of Turin - it's a shroud and it is (usually) in Turin. I don't believe any of the rest of the stories about it, though.
Originally Turin Shroud: In Whose Image? (1994), this was Lynn and Clive's first joint book, marking the start of their writing career. Now extensively updated and revised (2006), it has come full circle. Although always presenting compelling circumstantial evidence to link the alleged Holy Shroud of Turin with Leonardo da Vinci, at long last they present the first unassailable concrete evidence. There is no doubt at all now that da Vinci was involved with the Shroud.
(To those who inevitably argue that the Shroud was around - in France a hundred or so years before the Florentine master was even born - the answer is simply that there was a 'Holy Shroud' doing the rounds then, but judging by the contemporary accounts, it was not the same one as today's, Leonardo's brilliant fake.)
The Turin Shroud was faked by Renaissance artist Leonardo da Vinci using pioneering photographic techniques and a sculpture of his own head, a television documentary claims.
