The Last Supper...

Thinking about food and religion together brought to my mind the idea of The Last Supper image by da Vinci but made from food. However, I was pretty sure that someone else had probably already had this idea so I looked around for one and found this one made from biscuits by photographer Tom Altany.

I like this image because it's amusing and cute but also accurate as it mirrors the positions and actions of the disciples at the table really closely. I thought about doing something similar involving vegetables or something...

'The Last Supper' Leonardo da Vinci.

As an iconic image, The Last Supper has been repeated, recreated and changed to represent the ideas, parodies and messages of many people. I had a look at some of the ways it had been used to get some ideas...
