Wax Last Supper Diorama

Life-sized wax replica diorama of da Vinci's Last Supper.

[Jimj Milstead, 03/06/2009]

Completed in 1950, LA artists led by Harry Lisbon sculpted the figures over a period of five years in a barn-studio in the area. They were on display at the Santa Cruz Art League for decades, then were moved in 1990 to Santa Cruz Memorial Park and Funeral Home. Note: Santa Cruz Memorial Park features its own Last Supper rendition, in granite.
