Woman recreates 'Last Supper' with laundry lint recycled. Woman in north Michigan recreates the 'Last Supper' with laundry link material. It's a complete replica of the famous Leonardo da Vinci's painting.
Laura Bell of Roscommon collected lint from her dryer and fashioned it into a 14-foot-long, 4-foot tall reproduction of the Italian Renaissance painter's masterpiece.
Bell says she needed about 800 hours to do enough laundry to get the lint, and 200 hours to recreate the mural. She bought towels of the colors she wanted and laundered them separately to get the right shades of lint.
Her artwork has caught the eye of Ripley's Believe It or Not! The company plans to put it on display at one of its museums.
Ripley's says it also has Last Supper replicas made from a grain of rice, a dime and burned toast.
