A hyper-realistic model of the body of Jesus Christ was put on display in the Cathedral of Salamanca, Spain, as part of the exhibition “The mystery man”.

The body of Jesus Christ was recreated with latex, silicone and human hair, from the so-called Holy Shroud, also known as the Shroud of Turin or the Shroud, a relic of the Christian faith that is credited with having wrapped the body of Jesus of Nazareth after his death.

The sculpture has a weight of 75 kilos and represents Jesus bent over in ‘rigor mortis’, with bruised shoulders for carrying the cross, his body torn by the scourges and his head bloodied by the crown of thorns. Likewise, his side is perforated and traces of nails can be seen in his hands and feet.

The artistic director of the exhibition, Álvaro Blanco, affirmed that is the work of more than 15 years of study on the Shroud.

“What was sought was to make a figure as real as possible to what happens on the Shroud”, Blanco told Vatican News.

The bishop of the Diocese of Salamanca, Monsignor José Luis Retana, expressed his satisfaction with the result of the work. “ I think it is a copy or an exact representation of what Jesus suffered and died, and as that is imprinted in his flesh”, he expressed.
