Little Tey - St James - Last Supper
The Last Supper, c.1280. This is the first of a highly unusual series of Passion paintings around the apse of St James the Less. The figurative detail is of a very high quality, and although individual medieval wall paintings are quite common, an entire series such as this is rare. In the Last Supper, Christ sits at the centre of the table with St John asleep on his breast and the other disciples on either side. His left hand is held out to Judas who kneels on the other side of the table with his head bent back and his arms outstretched.
