The Last Supper in detail

This is not usually my cup of tea, but it is kind of fascinating.
This is a SUPER high resolution image (16 Billion pixels) of Leonardo da Vinci's
The Last Supper.  So high a resolution that it is well beyond the detail of what our eyes can normally see.
So it is pretty amazing to see it zoomed, the detail and texture of the paint... it's worth a look.

Sculptor Marisol Escobar was inspired by The Last Supper, rendering it as a life-sized, three-dimensional, sculptural assemblage using painted and drawn wood, plywood, brownstone, plaster and aluminum. This work, Self-Portrait Looking at The Last Supper, (1982–84) is in New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art.
