Leonardo Da Vinci's secrets !!

Post by The Catalyst on Mon Apr 25 2011, 12:29


Hi everyone, I hatched this video on one's own, brand new, I'll let you get a kick outta it, I hurt for you watching this video attentively, as things go it's exceptional.




The Painting is called: "Last Supper"


What Does Last Supper Depict?

Last Supper is Leonardo's visual interpretation of an event chronicled in all four of the Gospels (books in the Christian New Testament). The evening before Christ was betrayed by one of his disciples, he gathered them together to eat, tell them he knew what was coming and wash their feet (a gesture symbolizing that all were equal under the eyes of the Lord). As they ate and drank together, Christ gave the disciples explicit instructions on how to eat and drink in the future, in remembrance of him. It was the first celebration of the Eucharist, a ritual still performed.
Specifically, Last Supper depicts the next few seconds in this story after Christ dropped the bombshell that one disciple would betray him before sunrise, and all twelve have reacted to the news with different degrees of horror, anger and shock.


Who's in It?


Looking across the picture from left to right:
• Bartholomew, James Minor and Andrew form a group of three. All are aghast, Andrew to the point of holding his hands up in a "stop!" gesture.
• Judas, Peter and John form the next group of three. Judas, you will note, has his face in shadow and is clutching a small bag (of silver?). Peter is visibly angry and a feminine-looking John seems about to swoon.
• Christ is the calm in the midst of the storm.
• Thomas, James Major and Philip are next. Thomas is clearly agitated, James Major stunned and Philip seems to be seeking clarification.
• Matthew, Thaddeus and Simon comprise the last group of three figures. It appears that, when a situation turns ugly, Simon is the "go to" guy for explanations.


Why Is it Falling Apart?

Leonardo, always the inventor, tried using new materials for Last Supper. Instead of using tempera on wet plaster (the preferred method of fresco painting, and one which had worked successfully for centuries), he thought he'd give using dry plaster a whirl. His experiment resulted in a more varied palette, which was Leonardo's intent. What he hadn't taken into account (because, who knew?) was that this method wasn't at all durable. The painted plaster began to flake off the wall almost immediately, and people have been attempting to restore it ever since.

But then again, what is meant by the Fourteenth ?. I attach weight to the intricacy of this secret, I hunch we'll never know !!...

I guess this is the part where I should blurt out, and come out with an apology, because I fooled people, so ” I’m sorry, terribly sorry because I fooled you !! “, it sounds really awesome lol !!

Well, we should take in consideration the data, and sure we don’t really want to leap at the chance that I used the original painting, unlike you Marie. Well, not literally, there are things in the original painting that simply won’t occur in the animated one, which is the one you used.

It’s unjust to say that Last Supper is only one more painting of Leonardo Da Vinci’s, and it includes no secrets, and Leo only drew it, because he became bored up, and he didn’t find anything to do, the cables box went off by itself, so he had to put the TV out of his options list lol, and tried to find another way to pass the time, so he lastly came across one big white board and started drawing, that will be a heresy.

Principally, Leo is most well known as the master of secrets, I’ve been studying his works for years now, would you be amazed if I told you that each and every one of his paintings carries a secret?. Even a little one, that could most readily be above approach, and highly classified. Maybe, I say, maybe the fourteenth is his secret in Last Supper, I don’t know I could hardly tell. There must be something, we should ASK LEO himself of course lol !!
