Last Supper in Lint

Yes, Lint not Lent! NPR reports on a woman who created a picture of the Last Supper from dryer lint.

Laura Bell of Roscommon, Mich., used lint from her dryer to make a 14′ by 4′ reproduction of Leonardo da Vinci’s Last Supper.

The AP reports:

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.

Ripley’s Believe It or Not has purchased the picture.
