How to display the image(person's signature) that is stored as varchar(max) in sql server into SSRS report?

I have column (in sql server table) that seems to have the array of numbers like 58,35,55,36,55,36,52,38,50,38,46,41,46,42,45,43,44,44,44,44,45,44,45,45,46,45,49,45,49,45,53,43,56,38,57,37,57,37,57,39,58,42,58,45,59,47 and it is of varchar(max) datatype.
That's the signature of the client (they sign in using a device called pointcare.)
I need to display the client  signature in SSRS report.
How do i do that?

What are the datatypes supported by SSRS in order to display as image(like signature)?

Do you have any idea what the format is? I've seen signatures stored both as images and as drawing instructions - I suspect it's the second one, but without some additional detail, I'm not sure you'll be able to decode this.

Is there a vendor you can reach out to in order to get some detail on how these items are being stored, and to possibly get a code sample they have for retrieving them? Even if it's not in your language of choice (I got a code sample in my case in Java, and needed to port it into VB.NET - not a huge difference, but still), you'll at least have somewhere to start.

Unfortunately, there's no standard way to store a signature so you'll need some additional direction here.
