Do you recognize the face of the man below? At first glance you may be wondering who actually man's beard and black hair. You may also be surprised if there are claims that this is the real face of Jesus Christ, a key figure in the Christian faith.
|Forensic Anthropologist Richard Neave, this is what|
Jesus Christ may have looked like. Using information
from skulls found at Israeliachaeological sites, this is
his rendition. What do you think? (Picture from:
The man's face was vastly different from the depictions of Jesus in a wide range of modern Christian literature that exists today. During this time, Jesus was described by the figure of a white man has blond hair and long beard. While the image of the man above is based on data forensics of a skull Jewish men in the first century AD. The author is a British anatomical artist.
The artist Richard Neave, a former professor at Manchester University, made a face image after examining three skulls of Jews around the region of Galilee, Israel. About ten years ago, Neave borrowed the methods used by forensic experts to identify victims of crime to draw a face which he claims to be Jesus.
Indeed, the drawing of the man who claimed to be the real face of Jesus is not new. Having had circulated some time ago, that image is now back busy discussed in social media.

A side view of 'Jesus' is shown. (Picture from: http://adf.ly/1fgSUs)|

They used computer technology to work out how the muscles and skin should look, upon which they based a 3D model (seen on the computer screen) and a clay bust of Christ (right).

Using the Turin Shroud, the supposed burial cloth of Jesus, police investigators have generated a photo-fit image from the negative facial image on the material. (Picture from: http://adf.ly/1fgUeS)|
However, the results of the reconstruction made by the Italian police were very different from the results of facial reconstruction made by Professor Neave. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | DAILYMAIL | INDEPENDENT]
