The image on the tilma is composed of pigments that have not been identified by chemical analysis as being the product of animal, vegetable, or mineral dye. No undersketch has been identified below the painting.
Examination of the eyes of the image by photographers and ophtamalogists has suggested that the reflections of Juan Diego, the bishop, and the interpeter can be distinguished.
Additionally, the apparitions and the resulting tilma contributed in no small way to the Christianization of Mexico with several million Aztecs converting to Christianity in the ensuing years." miraclehunter

Messages from Jesus Given to a Chosen Child in Chicago (December 2-7, 2012)
"I usually only mention events as 'signs' of a change or
(I believe) foreshadowing more intense times to come,
but I would keep an eye on 12/12/2012 - the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe (patroness of the unborn).
December 12th is also right in the middle of Hanukkah 'the Festival of Lights.'"
"People will drill wells deep in the ground..The earth will suffer because of these open wounds."
