There's more to Leonardo da Vinci than just the Mona Lisa

Behind the canvas


This version of the famous 'The Last Supper' was painted around the same time as the original by two pupils of Leonardo.

A bad omen

Some details on the copy of 'The Last Supper' show features lost on the original one, such as the salt spilled on the table by Judas - traditionally a bad omen.

A picture is worth a thousand words

Leonardo believed that gestures and expressions should reflect what people were thinking and the faces of Thomas and James Major prove that.

The lost feet

In the original wall painting, the feet were lost when a door was built affecting the artwork. However they have been added into this copy!
