The Last Supper sculpture

'I love modern art, because it makes you think in new ways, and often about the important things in life', says the Rector of the parish church in Minchinhampton, Howard Gilbert. Modern art often provokes new and different ways of thinking and feeling emotion; it can help us embrace new ideas and reflect on our world and our lives differently.  

 

The Last Supper sculpture was inspired by the painting by Leonardo da Vinci, and shows all the expression and interaction of the characters, but in an unconventional way. Quotes and symbols from the bible create further interest and meaning.

Just as the bible and the original painting communicated with the latest modes of communication, this installation uses over 50,000 keys from recycled computer keyboards.

 

The Last Supper can be viewed
at Holy Trinity, Minchinhampton,
between 9.30 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday–Saturday,
and from noon until 5 p.m. on Sundays.
