The Last Supper

In the Last Supper, ‘The Messiah’ and 3 of his disciples sit quietly together, waiting for what is yet to come.

Each man's inner life and future actions hidden from their neighbors despite their proximity. Surprise, fear, doubt and betrail.  

The Messiah's jacket half in, half out of the picture frame positions him  between Heaven and Earth. His clothing making him ordinary and accessible and yet he transcends human earthliness with an ethereal presence and undefined features.

The symbols of the wine as his blood, the wool entwined in his beard and hair as the sacrificial lamb of God that died to save us all. 

The ribbon on a dreadlock reminds us of the ‘scapegoat’ in Leviticus that carried away sin and that Christ has carried away our sins when he instituted the Holy Mysteries of his Body and Blood.

The Last Supper (the Mystical) is a Feast upon a Sacrifice. Maundy Thursday and Good Friday become inextricably linked.
