Another thing about the hands. The fingers appear to not simply be a visual depiction of the hand, but an x-ray depiction. It more closely matches what we would see of an x-ray image than a photographic image. And this is not only for the hands, but other parts of the body as well.
The Shroud image suggests quite strongly the presence of many skeletal details e.g. carpal and metacarpal bones, some 22 teeth, eye sockets, left femur, left and possibly right thumbs flexed under the palms of the hands, as well as soft tissue and soft tissue injuries;
Impressions on the shroud of Turin apparently were caused by a natural form of X-ray, a researcher who examined revered cloth says.
‘The images are not fake,’ Dr. Giles F. Carter, an archaelogical chemist from Eastern Michigan University, said Tuesday.
Carter presented his research results at the 184th national meeting of the American Chemical Society.
Some researchers have said light may have caused the images, but Carter said X-rays are a more likely source because bones and teeth are visible in the image.
Bones can be seen in the image of the hands, Carter said.

However, x-ray was not discovered until 1895.
On November 8, 1895, German physics professor Wilhelm Röntgen stumbled on X-rays while experimenting with Lenard tubes and Crookes tubes and began studying them. He wrote an initial report “On a new kind of ray: A preliminary communication” and on December 28, 1895, submitted it to Würzburg’s Physical-Medical Society journal. This was the first paper written on X-rays. Röntgen referred to the radiation as “X”, to indicate that it was an unknown type of radiation. Some early texts refer to them as Chi-rays having interpreted “X” as the uppercase Greek letter Chi, Χ. The name X-rays stuck, although (over Röntgen’s great objections) many of his colleagues suggested calling them Röntgen rays. They are still referred to as such in many languages, including German, Hungarian, Ukrainian, Danish, Polish, Bulgarian, Swedish, Finnish, Estonian, Slovenian, Turkish, Russian, Latvian, Lithuanian, Japanese, Dutch, Georgian, Hebrew, and Norwegian. Röntgen received the first Nobel Prize in Physics for his discovery.
How would a forger know about x-ray imaging hundreds of years prior to its discovery? Why would he want to create an image that is similar to x-ray imaging even if he knew about it?
