Last Supper in Lint

Jesus Christ Recreated With Pocket Fuzz

I've seen Jesus turn up in a lot of unexpected places: Guitars, bar codes, toast, and a Cheeto -- but never before has he been so fuzzy.
Lint Last Supper

Lint Last Supper

Ripley's Believe It or Not!
A Michigan woman has recreated the last supper -- savior and all -- out of laundry lint.

No, it's not some weird new spin (cycle) on the Da Vinci code... but a massive painting 14 feet long and 4 feet high -- and it took Laura Bell about 200 hours to make (not to mention nearly 800 hours of laundry loads).

And now, it's a proud new addition to the Ripley's Believe It or Not! collection.

Ripley's spokesman Tim O'Brien says the painting is everything Ripley likes in a piece of art.

"We have smaller lint art pieces in our collection, but what hit us about this one is its immense size," he told me. "That combined with the amazing color she was able to get from natural lint to the details of the characters make this one great piece of art, albeit a very non-mainstream piece artistic endeavor."
