I found this article confusing in a couple of ways. There's a rectangular area in the image that looks processed, but the red box highlighting the image underneath only covers a quarter of it.
I also thought frescos were made by painting wet plaster. How can a fresco be re-used?
(I'm also disappointed that I can't make out the face.)
Fascinating event. Confusing article.

This happened all the time--they just troweled on another layer of plaster went to town.

We scanned the larger rectangle, but we were only able to see features in the boxed off area. The overall scanned area does, however, show the features of the toga so we could line up the scan with the painting and point out the exact location of the hidden painting. The face (eyes, eyebrows, nose, mouth, chin) are facing up and to the right.

That helps.  Thanks.
Best wishes.

Wishful thinking on the face and it has been long known that canvases were re-used by artists. Even TV stations like the BBC re-used film leading to the loss of much of TV's early works.

I didn't know that about early TV, that explains why so many shows cannot be recovered. Thanks.

We've all seen more recognizable faces on a piece of toast. Some people actually pray to those.

There are some strange ideas out there, like the one who saw a religious figure in a potato chip. Media was foolish enough to cover it.

Yeah and I can see and elephant shape in the clouds. Please!

Considering Pareidolia(two dots and a line a face makes),I am hard pressed to see a Roman man's face in that picture.

I wasn't able to see anything like they had mentioned and have to wonder what they were smoking while waiting for the scan to "reveal" an image. I think burnt toast creates better images than this.

Tobacco...thank you very much! No, I get that not everyone can see it (sometimes it's the screen resolution and contrast), however this is only one example of the use of this technique with the most interesting story behind it.

Darn picture looks like an old sonogram. I can't tell if it's a boy or a girl.
