12 Last Supper recreations for you to ponder

Jesus and the disciples as you’ve never seen them before.

TODAY IS HOLY Thursday, also known as Maundy Thursday and the fifth day of Holy Week.

It’s also the day which celebrates the Christian custom of marking Jesus and his disciples’ Last Supper, as captured in Leonarda Da Vinci’s late 15th century mural in Santa Maria delle Grazie in Milan.
