Tomb of Christ?

In his book, La Tombe Perdue (The Lost Tomb), Christian Doumergue asks the question, "Was the body of Christ laid to rest in Southern France?" In the image above, the boat carrying Mary Magdelene into Southern France is also apparently carrying a body wrapped in linens facing Mary, the mother of Jesus.
