Last Supper has more food now
Here’s a weird study; a pair of academics analyzed some of the more famous paintings of the Last Supper over the past thousand years, and found the food portions depicted in the paintings seemed to have grown by 69.2%. So rather than the anemic portions that were common before a serious revolution in the way we produce food, today’s paintings offer a larger variety and abundance of food stuffs. It just goes to show the influence of modern culture spills over into even our most ancient traditions. We’re not as good as we think we are in maintaining the integrity of ancient beliefs, and trust me, that’s a good thing.
