Leonardo da Vinci's "The Last Supper," painted in 1498, is a classic from the Renaissance. Leonardo demonstrated the idea of the "vanishing point" perspective, a fundamental concept ever since in art. Ang Kiuokok, a Filipino artist, painted his version of "The Last Supper" in 1973 from a Cubist perspective. Cubism was made famous by Pablo Picasso as a way to provide an enriching view of something familiar. The two paintings of the same subject serve as a way to introduce the subject of this book - the idea of looking at a core part of the Bible from a new and unexpected perspective in order to provide a richer view.
