SAUGUS, Mass.- A Massachusetts man said an image that "looks like Jesus Christ" appeared on the drop cloth he has been using to catch paint for four years.
Brian Krantz of Saugus said he used the clotch several times before he noticed the image he identifies as Jesus in the paint, WHDH-TV, Boston, reported Monday.
"A crown or a halo. Two eyes. Mustache, nose, there's the chin, jaw line. His right arm out like that, with cloths he was buried in hanging down," Krantz said, describing the image.
"I can't deny this. This is what it is. It looks like Jesus Christ," Krantz said.
Krantz said he plans to frame the image and keep it in his home.
His girlfriend, Julie Anne Aloise, said she has a theory about what the image means.
And we know that this is how Jesus looks, right? How is that? Where is he described? Anyone? Anyone?
Looks like Pete Townshend doing a windmill at Woodstock.
That’s not Jesus. It’s Vincent Price.
There is definitely a captivating quality about that image. That looks airbrushed to me, though.
The drop cloth of Turin.
LOL! Most interesting perception yet! LOL!
Translation. I am hoping to get publicity about Jesus for some art sales.
Reminds me of an old joke...the teacher is walking around, looking at what her first graders are drawing. She ask’s Johnny “what are YOU drawing, Johnny?” He says, “I am drawing Jesus.” The teacher says “Johnny, no one knows what Jesus looks like.” He says, “Well, they will in a minute.”
I like it. Kind of a Picasso Jesus.
Sally drew a Christmas tree festooned with bulbs, tinsel and lights, and shared it with the class explaining that lights are placed on the tree to represent Christ as the light of the world.
Billy drew a package with ribbon and bows, explaining to his teacher that on Christmas the earth received the greatest gift of all in its Savior.
Johnny drew a pretty standard manger scene with the regular characters, Mary, Joseph, Christ child, Magi, ox, lamb, etc. but off to the side was an immensely round and obese man the teacher could not immediately recognize.
"Who's this over hear?" the teacher asked Johnny.
"Why, that's Round John virgin."
It’s Jerry Garcia without his glasses.
“I can’t deny this. This is what it is. It looks like Jesus Christ,” Krantz said.
I like it too - I would frame it and put it in my basement. And I have seen cool designs after spray-painting something. Or he touched it up afterwards.
Ridiculous stupid superstition.
Jesus doesn’t need paint stains to give a message.
“Where is he described? Anyone? Anyone?”
He is not described in the Bible, but there are descriptions in several apocryphal works, notably the epistles of Pontius Pilate and Lentulus. There’s also the shroud of Turin/Mandylion, and it seems like most of the paintings of Jesus are ultimately based on that.
I dunno... kinda looks like this guy...
I agree it is stupid. The eye looks for (and often finds) a human face in all kinds of shapes. Someone always gets the vapors over it and calls it Jesus and gets their 15 minutes in the spotlight.
If this is what some people need to feel that Jesus was a real person, then I guess they can have it.
As for the image on the drop cloth? That's the Zig-Zag man. Nothing more.
THE SHROUD OF SAUGUS .
Looks a bit like Bryan Krantz himself to me.
That’s not Tron. That’s Moses.
I prefer the image in the Shroud of Turin, fake or real it seems the more real Jesus than the artist painting of “Jesus At The Door” or “Jesus Praying In Gethsemane” ...
That would be the drop cloth of turpentine .....:o)
I also see a turkey buzzard and a penguin as well as a depiction of Jesus.
Jesus Christ as painted by Picasso, perhaps.
Right, good one. To me I could accept the Shroud picture as Jesus anytime over His image on a piece of toast or in this case a painters drop cloth. Like one poster said - looks more like Vincent Price.
