Art is not a pleasure, a solace, or an amusement; art is great matter. Art is an organ of human life, transmitting man's reasonable perception into feeling. In our age the common religious perception of men is the consciousness of the brotherhood of man-we know that the well-being of man lies in the union with his fellow men. True science should indicate the various methods of applying this consciousness to life. Art should transform this perception into feeling. The task of art is enormous. Through the influence of real art, aided by science, guided by religion, that peaceful co-operation of man is now obtained by external means-by law courts, police, charitable institutions, factory inspection, etc.-when they should be obtained by man's free and joyous activity. Art should cause violence to be set aside. And it is only art that can accomplish this. - Leo N. Tolstoy
Specifically, The Last Supper depicts the next few seconds in this story after Christ dropped the bombshell that one disciple would beTrey 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 is (KURODA)
James Minor is (Dickie Scottlannd)
and Andrew is ( Bart or that new bart looking guy) form a group of three.
All are aghast, Andrew(Bart) to the point of holding his hands up in a "stop!" or maybe
a "Ill kick your ass " gesture.
Judas is (TREY),
Peter is (PAGE) and
John is (Brad Sands)
form the next group of three.
Judas (Trey), you will note, is clutching a small bag (silver).That he obtained for be-Trey-ing his friend J.F.
Peter( PAGE) is visibly angry .
And a feminine-looking John (Brad) seems about to swoon.
Christ (Fishman) is the calm in the midst of the storm.
Thomas (MIKE GORDON),
James Major (wook#17)
and Philip (crew guy #1) are next.
Matthew is (Bruno),
Thaddeus is (John Lang)
and Simon is (Paul Lang)
comprise the last group of three figures.
It appears that, when a situation turns ugly, Simon (PAUL) is the "go to" guy for explanations.
