Woman Creates Last Supper Out Of Lint

Here's something you don't read about everyday. And probably for good reason.

From The Daily Mail
A northern Michigan woman has put her own spin on Leonardo da Vinci's The Last Supper... by making a replica out of laundry lint.

Laura Bell of Roscommon collected lint from her dryer and fashioned it into a four-foot tall by 14ft wide reproduction of the Italian Renaissance painter's masterpiece.

Bell says she needed about 800 hours to do enough laundry to get the lint, and 200 hours to recreate the mural.

She bought towels of the colours she wanted and washed them separately to get the right shades of lint.

It's unlikely to be hung in the Louvre in Paris, but it's not merely being hung out to dry.

The artwork has caught the eye of Ripley's Believe It Or Not! - famous for collecting outrageous, bizarre and unusual curios.
The company plans to put it on display at one of its museumsm, and a Ripley's spokesman says it already has replicas of The Last Supper made from a grain of rice, a dime and burned toast.

The original Da Vinci painting measures 15ft tall by 29ft wide and covers the back wall of the dining hall at the monastery of Santa Maria delle Grazie in Milan, Italy.
