Last Supper Woodcarving - The Upper Room - Nashville

Last Supper Woodcarving - The Upper Room - Nashville

The description from the Upper Room's website:
Commissioned for the opening of The Upper Room Chapel in 1953, the woodcarving of Leonardo da Vinci's The Last Supper sets the mood and theme of the chapel. Fifty craftspersons worked for fourteen months under the direction of sculptor Ernest Pellegrini to create the work. It was carved from linden (basswood) and walnut and is 17 ft. wide and 8 ft. high.
