View-Master: The Ascension

The Ascension: from an early 1940's-50's children's 3D film reel from View-Master. It depicts Jesus rising into Heaven. These scenes and figures were modeled entirely by hand, and shot onto early Kodachrome film. When placed into a stereoscopic viewer, the scene would be in full-color 3D. My Wonders of the Bible collection has one of the largest libraries of Christian 3D imaging technology in the world. Many pieces are the original studio large-format film masters. God Bless You Today -- and Every Day ... AND ... remember to love others, just as Jesus loves YOU!

Veil of Veronica 1649 engraving by Claude Mellan

Believe It or Not: This 1649 engraving of the Veil of Saint Veronica was made with one non-stop, outwardly spiraling line.

The engraver, Claude Mellan, turned and adjusted his engraving pen -- thicker and thinner, starting at the tip of the nose (shown above) -- as he continued to rotate the plate with his other hand.

The line never stops. When you view it up close, it is just a spiral. When viewed far away, it is the face of Jesus Christ.

God Bless You -- Today and Every Day!

Secondo Pia 1898 Shroud of Turin Photo

Officially stamped Shroud-of-Turin albumen photo from the original glass plate negative of Secondo Pia in 1898. This was the very first photo ever taken of the Holy Shroud. It captured the light that was reflected off the Shroud, and stored this moment in time ... when Secondo Pia opened the shutter of his camera on the evening of May 28, 1898. Contains the seals and signatures of Torino church officials. Not to be confused with a similar, much smaller rendition that is a lithograph. This has an actual albumen photo affixed (with the officiating seal emobossed into the lower left-hand corner of the photograph). Seeing this historical artifact in person -- one of only a few in the entire world -- is a once in a lifetime opportunity. I will be taking this piece on the road with me in future Wonders of the Bible exhibits -- including 2018 World Maker Faire at the New York Hall of Science, September 22 and 23. God Bless You -- Today and Every Day. AND love one another, just as Jesus loves YOU.

Face in the Shroud

Can you see the face in the shroud? I took this photograph of an official Vatican authorized Shroud of Turin reproduction in Philadelphia, PA, USA. There are nine such "official" replicas in the world today. They are extremely accurate to the smallest detail. What you are seeing is a very accurate digital photograph of the face in the shroud (although a compressed JPG file). Just as it would appear to you in person. This is what the face truly looks like. May God Bless You -- Today and Every Day!
