“The Last Supper” reenacted by wraiths

From Wikipedia

The Goldwell Open Air Museum is an outdoor sculpture park near the ghost town of Rhyolite in Nevada…The nonprofit museum was organized in 2000 after the death of Albert Szukalski, the Belgian artist who created the site’s first sculptures in 1984 near the abandoned railway station in Rhyolite.

The sculpture, The Last Supper, consists of ghostly life-sized forms arranged as in the painting The Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci. Szukalski molded his shapes by draping plaster-soaked burlap over live models until the plaster dried enough to stand on its own.

The 1984 sculpture was only intended to last 2 years, but is still as extant and eerie as ever…

    That is quite a coincidence! Yesterday I stumbled in a printed picture of me right there, it must have been 2002, I was barely pregnant with my first child, and I hadn’t seen that picture for at least 7 years.

    I think it’s really beautiful in an ominous sort of way…also I had to look up the word extant always good to learn a new word 🙂
