Not Created By A Human Hand was conceived as an invitation to several artists to create a new work that responds in some way, to either the shroud of Turin or the first photograph of it, by Secondo Pia. The photograph of the shroud (1898) opened up the possibility of turning the imprint of the body of Christ from a negative into a positive; to finally see the face, and make sense of the stains of the linen.
