Forest Lawn Memorial Park, Glendale, California
In the Memorial Court of Honor hangs a stained glass window that recreates Leonardo da Vinci’s “The Last Supper.” It is flanked by reproductions of sculptures by Michelangelo. The ones on the right side above are from the Medici chapel in Florence.
The stained glass window was created “in jewel-like glass” by Rosa Caselli Moretti, “last of this family possessing the secret of this magnificent stained glass since the 12th century.”
My favorite part of the story is that the “twice life-size figure of Judas broke five times in the furnace.” Judas is the fourth from the left.
The window took seven years to complete. It was dedicated in 1931.
