Holy Thursday--The Last Supper
The story continues with the scenes from the Passion of Christ.
I've decided to use Giotto's Scenes from the Life of Christ frescoes for Holy Week (see Sunday, March 28, Palm Sunday) Today's: No. 29 Scenes from the Life of Christ: 13. Last Supper 1304-06 Fresco, 200 x 185 cm Cappella Scrovegni (Arena Chapel), Padua Web Gallery of Art http://www.wga.hu/frames-e.html?/html/g/giotto/index.html
I enjoy art and like to look for it in the natural world. My craft interests include handspinning and most of the fiber arts, especially knitting, weaving, and working with paper. Other important things are my family and friends, my pets, nature, literature, poetry, music, history, birding, star gazing, museums...and the list goes on. In other times and places, I've been an archaeologist, taught anthropology, and worked in a living history museum, so I find all sorts of things to hold my interest and keep me entertained. I hope to share some of these things with you.
