Thousands of Jesus paintings and drawings have been created through the ages, yet no one knows what he really looks like.

The vision of Jesus Christ, etched in our minds, is one suggested by artistic masterpieces, like Leonardo da Vinci’s “The Last Supper” (1498), Michelangelo’s “The Last Judgement” (1541) or El Greco’s “Christ Carrying the Cross” (1540).

All these paintings, and appearances in popular culture are stereotypical portraits of Jesus, a long-haired man, usually blue eyed, with a robe that reveals his feet in sandals.

But there is nothing written in the New Testament offering evidence to his physical appearance, nor are there skeletal or other remains allowing a DNA analysis.

His real appearance has remained a mystery but now, experts believe they created a more accurate representation of the Son of God.
