An Iranian artist has created a wall carpet bearing the image of Leonardo da Vinci's world-renowned masterpiece,'The Last Supper'.

“The carpet has been woven as an attempt to clear the air between religions and improve the interactions between Islam and Christianity,” said Reza Asadpur, the creator of the carpet.

The 120x170-centimeter carpet that has been woven with an astonishing 1,450,000 knots is made of Australian wool and silk while being dyed by 1,500 different colours.

An innovative method, which does not need any chemicals, has been used to dye the material.

Da Vinci's “The Last Supper” (about 1495-1498) is a mural painting, which depicts the last days of Jesus Christ when he announces that one of his 12 disciples will betray him.
