The Great Masterpiece
Lake Wales, Florida
In a beautiful garden on the shore of Lake Pierce near the Singing Tower is lovated one of the great art treasures of modern times...a magnificently executed 300,000 piece mosaic in which is recaptured for all time the detail and meaning of Leonardo da Vinci's immortal "Lord's Last Supper".
Viewing the huge mosaic in its unusual outdoor setting, the visitor is easily transported to Milan where Leonardo's original painting, ravaged by time and war, is gradually fading from the wall of an ancient monastery.
Europe's most highly skilled mosaic artisians completed the Great Masterpiece in Germany in 1930. Flown out of Berlin by U.S. Airlift it was brought to its permanent home here in the Gardens of Peace.
