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.
