The Last Supper

The name of my piece is the last supper that was completed 1498. This piece is published in books throughout the world for people to enjoy. This piece was significant because it showed that religion was important part of life back then and this demonstrated that. I find this piece interesting because of how much detail, time and effort went into this to make it life like. This demonstrates humanism because it shows what humans believe in and how religion is a huge part of their lives.
