Da Vinci's Last Supper

One of your callers today reported with surprise on a "larger than life" version of Da Vinci's Last Supper in a restaurant. I admit that the last supper is hardly usual decor for an eating establishment in the U.S. It is, however, entirely consistent with the size and location of the original. Da Vinci's painting is a large mural. It covers (not hangs on) the wall of what was, at the time, a refectory (dining hall) of a church or monastery.
