The story of “The Last Supper” during which Jesus told his disciples that he will be betrayed by one of them at the same evening is common knowledge.

The moment of Jesus’ prophecy Leonardo da Vince recorded on the 4.22 x 9.04 m big painting, what decorates the North wall of the refectory of the Dominican church Santa Maria delle Grazie in Milan. This artwork counts as the peak of Leonardo da Vinci’s work. It was executed in Seccotechnique, i.e. it was applied on the dry walls whereas the Fresco is painted on the still wet plaster.

Leonardo received the order for the painting by the Milanese Duke Ludovico Sforza and he worked on it from 1494 to 1498.

The pattern of this Hereke silken rug is based on this painting.

When I have seen Christian Motifs on Hereke silken rugs first time, I asked myself, why they are displayed on rugs originating from the mostly Muslim Turkey. I researched and determined that these motifs are a remembrance and bow before their great Christian history.
