Dryer lint art, The Last Supper

I didn't see this posted yet, .... There may be better links, but this was easiest for me: Michigan Woman Re-Creates A Masterpiece -- With Lint From Her Dryer : The Two-Way : NPR

What do you do all day?

Buying towels to get the right colors? Boy, talk about doing it the easy way. Now, if she'd used the lint from her navel, I might be impressed.

This does not sound like a LBYM project, either. Think of the electricity use, and the family probably didn't need towels in every color of the rainbow

Very unusual. Reminded me of this. Don't think I'm in the market for lint or fur art in the near future. But, hey, to each her own.

I have often thought about things like this -- for example, if one collected navel or pocket lint from as early age as possible, how large a wad would it be at age 65? Fingernail and/or toenail clippings? What else? Lets not get too graphic.

Could be worse. Could be toenail clippings.

It sure felt like a privilege to see the original Last Supper. Not sure I'd be willing to wait in line for her version. But is does indeed answer the question of what-do-you-do-all-day!

I think it is quite impressive, and more than a little artistic. It must also have had religious meaning for her, as this is clearly a labor of love.

Even museums today are full of very odd constructions.

In the annals of dryer sheet history, this work will hold a place of honor.
