Jesus and his Disciples arrive in Split

The Last Supper, weighing in at close to 1000 pounds, carried through the East Gate of Dicoletian’s Palace

A few days ago, tourists were startled to see Jesus and his Disciples making their once a year appearance in Split.  The enormous 5 meter long Last Supper was carefully moved by a dozen or so men through the East Gate arched entry to Diocletian’s Palace.

For several days during the Easter holiday, the life-like display will be in the Peristil for all to see.  Just off the Peristil is the city’s most important cathedral, Sv. Duje where there is always a big Easter service.

Weighing over 1000 pounds, the massive display makes it way carefully through the Palace

The enormous display, weighing more than 1000 pounds, was an amazing site as it slowly made its way through the ancient streets of the Palace.

Making sure nothing went amiss, the strong-backed carriers took their time

It surely was one of the most surreal moments I ever experienced….but it was great to have a camera handy to catch it all in progress.
