Da Vinci's "Last Supper"

This is the picture the humanities class took last year. Since it's a tradition, I suggest we do this soon, in order to bolster our understanding of Da Vinci's oil/tempura painting.

I think we definitely need to do this!
Also, as Mrs. Quinet mentioned in class, Davinci's "Last Supper" contains references to the number 3, signifying the Trinity. For instance, the Apostles are seated in groupings of three, there are three windows behind Jesus, and the shape of Jesus' figure resembles a triangle. This reminded me of Dante's use of terza rima and other references to the number 3.

I'm still all for bringing Doc back. In fact, we are a class of 10. And with our two teachers, that makes 12 apostles. If Doc was Jesus in the center, that would be the perfect count for the photo.
