The Turin Shroud goes display after Easter at Turin Cathedral, where it has been kept for more than 500 years. The cloth seems to have a reversed like a photographic negative of a crucified man.
This Saturday was the historic moment when the Turin Shroud went on display. Measuring 14.5 by 3.9 feet, shows an impression of the back and front of a bearded man with long hair, his arms crossed on his chest. The cloth is also marked with what appears to be rivulets of blood from wounds in the wrists, feet and side.
The Catholic Church however has never vouched for it's authenticity but says it should be a powerful reminder of Christ's passion.
The last time it was put on public display was for the Catholic jubilee year in 2000.Two million visitors are expected in Italy to see it before the display ends on May 23. Pope Benedict, the official owner of the cloth, is due to visit the Shroud on May 2nd.
