A Michigan woman has discovered a clever way to recycle the lint from her dryer.
The 14′ x 4′ reproduction of Leonardo da Vinci’s The Last Supper was meticulously crafted by drying towels of all the necessary colors, including the brilliant orange seen on Phillip the apostle. That’s right – none of this uses ink.
Although the ‘painting’ did not win the $250,000 Grand Rapids Art Prize which motivated the piece, Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! purchased it from her for an undisclosed amount; evidently, they have a small collection of ‘lint art’ and – starving artists take heed – they want more.
