Woman recreates da Vinci's 'Last Supper' with lint

Posted: Updated:

ROSCOMMON, Mich. (AP) — 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 14-foot-long, 4-foot tall 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 colors she wanted and laundered them separately to get the right shades of lint.

Her artwork has caught the eye of Ripley's Believe It or Not! The company plans to put it on display at one of its museums.

Ripley's says it also has Last Supper replicas made from a grain of rice, a dime and burned toast.
