"The Last Supper" in The Da Vinci Mode

Da Vinci's "The Last Supper"
Tomorrow a high-resolution image of Da Vinci's "The Last Supper" will be posted on the net by an Italian hi-tech digital-imaging firm Haltadefinizione - which I'm guessing means high definition in Italian. It's going to be travelling on the internet at 16 billion pixels so I guess you'll be able to see right into the paint-cracks of this 500-year-old mural depicting Jesus Christ saying "Verily I say unto you, that one of you shall betray me".

In that crappy novel The Da Vinci Code Dan Brown had JC marrying Mary Magdelene and fathering a child. All the nutcases came out of the woodwork on that one.

One of them, an Italian information technologist, Slavisa Pesci, said the superimposition of the mural with its mirror-image threw up another image containing a figure looking like a Templar knight and another holding a small baby. And if you looked even closer you'd see the Devil sitting on Jesus' shoulder smoking a cigarette (not really...I made that last bit up).

Should be worth a look.
