The highly detailed image is printed with a wide platen professional inkjet printer onto special cotton canvas material (the same as used for the Lifesize Replica) using archival dyes for long life.
The image itself is approximately 40" x 10" with a white border making it suitable for (custom) framing.
We have listened to our viewers and are very happy to announce that a that is designed to match the ventral in both size and image quality.
However, since the backlight technology has evolved over the years (from fluorescent bulbs to LED's) and the transparencies are now made digitally rather than photographically, it is possible that the density and color of the new Dorsal view may not perfectly match the density and color of the earlier Ventral versions.
They are currently displayed at Shroud Centers in Richmond, Virginia; Stockton, California; Colorado Springs, Colorado; Fountain Valley, California and Hanceville, Alabama, to name only a few.
(You can read about and see photographs of the Auckland exhibit on the 2005 Website News page).
During the five months in which Steve and I tested various cloth materials and carefully adjusted the color and density of the image, we also made countless test prints of various portions of the Shroud.
However, please write to us first with your shipping address since we will need to get a specific shipping quote for all orders outside the continental U. These are exactly the same transparencies as those that appear at Shroud Centers around the world, only smaller.
Each is delivered in a custom built Photo Glow® Frame only 13/16" thick, and is ready to hang.
