The real face of Santa - man of Middle Eastern appearance
Saw a brilliant documentary on ABC last night, tracking the work of forensic archaelogists in establishing the true face of Saint Nicholas (patron Saint of sailors by the way), using the latest in digital forensic technolgy. Not surprisingly, given that he lived in the vicinity of modern Turkey, he was not unlike many thick set middle aged men of Middle Eastern appearance seen in the streets of our big cities. Given that Jesus was also of Middle Eastern appearance, ain't life strange?
