One of the most spectacular displays of the
Last Supper is set up annuallyin the
Dominican Oratory in Valletta, with a horse-shoe shaped table with meticulously
prepared plates with various symbols relating to the Passion of Jesus, the 12
apostles and coat-of-arms of various Prelates. The different plates were made
with the use of rice, beans, pasta, semolina, salt and lentils, all arranged to
create a beautiful display of colorful symbols.
One can see also fruit, a large
loaf of bread in the shape of a donut, olives, chalices, and other ornaments.
But nothing is wasted, as all the ingredients are then given to orphanages and
nursing homes to be used in cooking. Please do click on each photo to see the
details and precision by which these plates have been prepared.
