Why do you say that we are not supposed to see the face of Jesus?
Is that written somewhere?
Did you read the article?
"The presence of a face on both sides of the shroud would seem an obvious feature in case of a fake: when making a print onto a cloth, paint soaks
the cloth's fibers reaching also the back side.
"This is not the case of the Shroud. On both sides, the face image is superficial, involving only the outermost linen fibers. When a cross-section of
the fabric is made, one extremely superficial image appears above and one below, but there is nothing in the middle. It is extremely difficult to make
a fake with these features," Fanti said."
