Last Supper, Italy

Italy-30, originally uploaded by Abhishek's Received Postcards.

In the Christian Gospels, the Last Supper (also called the Lord's Supper) was the last meal Jesus shared with his Twelve Apostles and disciples before his death. The Last Supper has been the subject of many paintings, perhaps the most famous by Leonardo da Vinci.
The vessel which was used to serve the wine is sometimes called the Holy Chalice, and has been the one of the supposed subjects of Holy Grail literature in Christian mythology.
