Good, clean faith.

The 14-by-4-foot replication of the Last Supper pictured below is made up entirely of laundry lint. Laura Bell of Roscommon, Michigan did 800 hours of laundry, buying towels of just the right colors, to put together her work of art. She couldn't use her own laundry's lint because it was all the same color.

Inspired by a lint portrait she had seen at the Ripley's Believe It or Not! Wisconsin Dells Odditorium, the amateur artist sold the piece to Ripley's. The piece is the largest lint portrait in their collection.

"For some people, it's a very spiritual experience," Bell said. "Others are simply amazed at what someone could do with basic laundry lint."
