This is the moment Leonardo Da Vinci’s famous painting ‘The Last Supper’ was recreated by a VICAR – using his local FOOTBALL team.

Reverend Nick Shutt, 51, asked players and staff from the village side to replace Jesus and his disciples in the iconic picture.

Rev Shutt, a photographer of Yelverton, Devon, used the team to recreate Da Vinci’s work of the Last Supper originally completed in 1497.

Players from the local Walkhampton Football Club were used as stand ins for The Messiah and his followers.

Rev Shutt said: ”I am creating a series of classical art work that fits in with 20th Century life.

”This particular piece, Last Supper, is famous and many people know it from the book, The Da Vinci Code.

”I thought that recreating it with footballers could get an ancient message across using up-to-date imagery – and it’s particularly relevant during the World Cup.”
