The Last Supper Sculpture was inspired by the painting by Leonardo De Vinci, and completed in December 2019,” said Peter. “My aim was to re-create the painting as an abstract three-dimensional form.”

Rector Howard Gilbert, from Minchinhampton parish church, added: “I love modern art because it makes you think in new ways, and often about the important things in life.

“Modern art often provokes new and different ways of thinking and feeling emotion; it can help us embrace new ideas and reflect on our world and our lives differently”.
