The Last Supper - Now Online in Amazing Detail.

0


An Italian technology firm, HAL9000, has created an online mega-composite of Leonardo da Vinci's Last Supper at an incredible 16 gigapixel resolution (about 2,000 times more detailed than a standard digital photograph). The picture above shows the hands of the person sitting next to Jesus in the Last Supper (the individual that Dan Brown claimed to be Mary Magdalene in The Da Vinci Code), at only a 6% zoom.

I chose this particular image for the benefit of any fellow conspiracy theorists ... doesn't it look a little like a wedding ring on "her" left middle finger?

I still can't believe how seriously people treated that book in the first place. Seriously, I'd swear every other chapter ended with an ellipse...

It was funny.

"the individual that Dan Brown claimed to be Mary Magdalene in The Da Vinci Code"

You mean the apostle John, right? No one in the know ever said it was anyone other than an effeminate-looking John until the "Priory" myth was conceived later on, which Dan Brown capitalized heavily on -- a full decade after Pierre Plantard himself admitted it was a complete fraud.
