Last Supper displays

One of the most spectacular displays of the Last Supper is set up annually  in 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.
