Is this the secret hidden meaning behind Da Vinci’s ‘Last Supper’?
The Last Supper by Leonardo Da Vinci is one of the most recognizable images in history.
Shrouded in meaning, the image appears to portray Jesus and his disciples sharing their last meal together. But is this all the picture stands for?
Some believe that there is a secret hidden meaning to the painting. Da Vinci was not your average painter, or your average anything.
He was unusually clever and insightful for his time. He would even put many painters, authors and philosophers today to shame.
His work is steeped with religious references, and despite being of unnaturally high intelligence, he was also deeply religious.
At first glance you might not find anything unusual in the painting, but look a little deeper and things start to get pretty weird.
Critics across the world have picked apart this painting since the moment it was finished. Who is sat the left of Jesus, is it really a woman? And why is everyone sat on the same side?
For a man of Da Vinci’s capabilities it does seem almost inconceivable that he would simply paint a dinner scene. There must be more to it than that.
A new school of thought has put forward the idea that hidden in this painting is not a message about Jesus and his disciples, but a message about the zodiac.
The signs of the zodiac are one of the most ancient human symbolisms. Whether you believe in star signs or not, you cannot deny that the signs of the zodiac have permeated our culture since we first gazed up at the night sky.
The video below explains just how the ‘Last Supper’ could be a hidden message about the importance of the zodiac. Alongside being a painter, Da Vinci was also a writer, inventor, architect, engineer, mathematician, anatomist. His interests were far-reaching and this in apparent in his vast works.
There have been numerous attempts to decode not just the Last Supper, but a number of Da Vinci’s other works. The famous novels of Dan Brown including ‘The Da Vinci Code’ touch on the wealth of mysteries hidden inside Da Vinci’s work.
The ‘Last Supper’ scene seems to be divided up irregularly. Why are the disciples set up into four small clusters rather than a more natural image? It’s not as though Da Vinci wasn’t talented enough to produce a more realistic scene…
