It's subtle but if you look really hard at the 16 billion pixels that represent a recent restoration of da Vinci's Last Supper, you can barely make out a plate of grilled eels and an orange slice. The image is so vague that it could also be a plate of donuts. According to MHC Art Professor John Varriano, this dish is a Renaissance painter's version of what Jesus and his disciples dined on at the last supper. It is more likely, he says in article last week in the Hampshire Gazette, that they Jesus would have stayed away from eels since he was Jewish.

Grilled eels or donuts? See for yourself the restored, digitized version of Leonardo da Vinci's "The Last Supper," 1498.
