DaVinci in Detail

For those of you who are interested in art, you may find this interesting. DaVinci's "Last Supper" is located in a Milan church for everyone to view, although I am sure that there is a lot of security guards, visitors also must walk through a filtration system to get all the dust and other particles off before viewing the painting. Since there is a huge process and probably is very time consuming, only about 320,000 people actually get to see the painting a year!!!

Well Now there is a solution! For those of us who can't make it to Milan, don't feel bad. Sit back and relax, have a cup of coffee or whatever your choice of beverage may be and enjoy the painting from your own home!!!!

As of Saturday, the painting was put online by officials. I know you can find this image pretty much anywhere all over the net, but what is different is that "Last Supper" painting online has 16 billion pixels!!!!!!! This actually makes the image 1600 times stronger!! I was actually very surprised when I looked at the site and the image. It really is amazing how much you can zoom in and see so much detail!! If any of you are interested, you can find out more information and view the painting right here . . . . . . !! Have a good weekend!
