Da Vinci admits he edited the painting of The Last Supper

One of the greatest painters of the Italian Renaissance, has apologised "for any confusion" after he admitted editing a painting of The Last Supper. His statement was posted on the Vatican social media, after the Pope retracted the picture over editing concerns. "Like many artists, I do occasionally experiment with positioning," said Leonado. “Obviously they weren’t all sitting down one side of the table, that would be just mad. If I had depicted them as they were placed we would only have seen the backs of their heads

Several cardinals noted an "inconsistency in alignment of Thomas's raised hand". In his statement on X, formerly Twitter, the painter said: "Hands are really difficult. Have you ever tried to draw a hand? Why do you think Homer Simpson only has three fingers?."

According to art community sources, there were "minor adjustments" made by the artist to the picture that was then posted on an end wall of the dining hall at the monastery of Santa Maria delle Grazie in Milan, Italy. The Vatican said it would not be reissuing the original unedited painting, which is believed to show John consulting his iphone, and Judas arguing with a waiter over the bill and who had dessert. They added, “If we had wanted accuracy we would have asked the bloke who did the Turin Shroud.
