A computer technician claims to have discovered a real da Vinci code after finding music hidden in Leonardo's masterpiece, The Last Supper.Wow, who knew that The Last Supper would be so lucrative? And here I was thinking it's, well, you know, salvific.
Giovanni Maria Pala said that the hands of Jesus and the Apostles, and the loaves of bread in the picture each represented a note, which formed a 40-second composition.
He made the discovery after superimposing a stave - the five lines used in sheet music - on the painting. The composition emerges when the "notes" are read right to left, following Leonardo's own technique.
Mr Pala, who will publish his findings in a book next week, said: "It sounded really solemn, almost like a requiem."
