Super-sized Last Supper

Inspired by an article on the BBC website about a study of paintings of scenes from the Last Supper. According to the BBC "The main meals grew 69% and plate size 66% between the oldest (carried out in 1000AD) and most recent (1700s) paintings. Bread size grew by about 23%. The sharpest increases were seen in paintings completed after 1500 and up to 1900AD".
