A photographer from the Netherlands undertook to recreate the face of the most famous man in the world: Jesus Christ.
The result went viral and controversial.
Bas Uterwijk is a photographer specializing in recreating images and with the help of the Artbreeder program he worked to obtain the face of Jesus.
The artist also made use of other elements, such as the combination of many faces with which the “son of God” has been represented.
He even used the image of the Shroud of Turin and the portrait of Leonardo da Vinci entitled Salvator Mundi.
After obtaining a single image of Jesus’ face, the photographer retouched it based on ethnic characteristics in the Middle East 2,000 years ago, according to 20 minutes.
Finally, Uterwijk made two versions of the face of Jesus, one with long hair and another with short hair and a more prominent beard, more precisely in keeping with the time.
The photograph has gone viral and has caused controversy on social networks, among those who have praised his work and those who do not accept this image of Jesus.
Although this image seems to be more realistic, through the years religions have shown Jesus with a white complexion, with fine features and even colored eyes.
