5. The Eyes on the Image
Engineer Jose Aste Tonsmann, has amplified an image of the pupils of the Blessed Virgin by 2500 times. This allowed him to identify not only what appears to be the image of Bishop Zumarraga, but also several other witnesses of the miracle reflected there.
The images in the pupils also manifest the triple reflection called the Samson-Purkinje effect. This effect was completely unknown at the time of the image’s formation.
The image in the eyes of the Virgin follow the curvature of the cornea precisely in the way it occurs in a normal human eye.
