I had thought of a group of daffodils - but remembered this picture and thought it a lot more interesting!

This is the reredos of St Martin's Church in York. It depicts The Last Supper.

I do like that.
I just spent a few moments comparing it to the mural by Leonardo da Vinci and there are some echoes, for all that there are also major differences.
Yes, I thought that it definitely was inspired by the Leonardo one.... sort of fan-piece!
That is very unusual!
It is. But quite haunting, I think.
Indeed!
This is a really special piece, I like it very much.
St Martin's is a fascinating church - in effect it is all that is left of a bigger church, with it's ow mission to fulfil. The reredos is very in keeping with the story of the church.
