The Last Supper

A replica taken from the Da Vinci Exhibition on its tour stop in Kansas City, Missouri.

 

The man viewing one of the most talked about art pieces in history gave this the perfect perspective as I was leaving the exhibit. I chose to going monochrome to give it a more somber tone.

 

"Everyone knows the painting depicts Jesus' last meal with his apostles before he was captured and crucified. But more specifically, da Vinci wanted to capture the instant just after Jesus reveals that one of his friends will betray him, complete with reactions of shock and rage from the apostles. In da Vinci's interpretation, the moment also takes place just before the birth of the Eucharist, with Jesus reaching for the bread and a glass of wine that would be the key symbols of this Christian sacrament."
