Da Vinci’s The Last Supper gets a very salty twist

Da Vinci might’ve been a masterful artist, but he never thought about constructing a 30-foot banquet table of The Last Supper, did he? Husband-and-wife artists Ken and Julia Yonentani created this rather incredible artwork with Aussie salt.

The couple says of their work: ‘Salt becomes a metaphor not only for the impacts of salinity, but for broader issues of food security and food safety in an increasingly toxic world’.

To build this piece, the couple used one ton of salt from the Murray River and are keeping a secret on how they bound the material together.
