An original signed artwork by John Lennon called the "Shroud of Tourin" created in the autumn of 1966 just after his comments about the Beatles being more popular than Jesus caused a stir in the US.
The unique and rarely seen canvas is similar to the original shroud in Turin in that it is hard to see and the details emerge only after close examination.
The shroud measures 26.5 X 18 inches and it is believed that the words on it later morphed into the song "Strawberry Fields".
The image"s title "Shroud of Tourin" is a reference to his dislike of touring " he had been on the road for years at that stage. Indeed it was after Lennon"s quip that the band was more popular than Jesus that they ceased touring.
The canvas shows a picture that is three dimensional. It has Lennon wearing two pairs of glasses and a Batman symbol across his chest.
He has his fists held in front of him, with "love" and "hate" written on the knuckles.
To the left is a cross on a hill with a crown above it and the word "Elvis".
Words are written across the image. They include: "Spectacles - wife child love - maijhuana [sic]," "Holy Batman I knew this would happen," and below the drawing of a radio "tune in if you want."
The "shroud" has been owned by a collector for many years
