About Bohdan Piasecki's LAST SUPPER

Leonardo da Vinci's great masterpiece "The Last Supper" is for many Christians the clearest image they have of Christ's last meal with his disciples. Yet though it is great art, da Vinci's painting is bad history.

Da Vinci shows thirteen Renaissance Italian males in oriental costume in a Florentine palace, not a Jewish celebration of the Passover in Palestine. The figures are seated about the tables on benches eating a meal of fish and ordinary bread, whereas Jesus and his disciples would have reclined on couches and ate a Passover meal consisting of unleavened bread, roast lamb and bitter herb

More importantly, Da Vinci shows only Jesus and the twelve apostles, omitting women and children. The Passover meal is intended to be shared by all members of the family and the laws of Passover require children to ask questions so that they can learn the meaning of the Passover meal from their parents.

In order to counter Leonardo's powerful image of the Last Supper, BASIC (Brothers And Sisters in Christ) commissioned the eminent Polish artist Bohdan Piasecki to paint the Last Supper as a Jewish Passover meal with women and children present.  In 2012 BASIC voted to merge with We Are Church Ireland and passed on the publishing rights to the "Last Supper" picture to We Are Church Ireland

The original painting is oil on canvas measuring 150cm x 74cm (50" x 29") and we have large prints available, measuring 97cm by 48 cm (38" x 19"). They cost EURO 29 including postage and packaging. We also have postcards available (21cm x 10cm (8" x 4")); they cost EURO 14 per pack of 10 postcards including post and packing. Proceeds go to support We Are Church Ireland in it’s activities.

Prints are despatched through the Irish postal service, An Post, and  normally take about four weeks to reach customers outside Ireland. Postage times may be longer over the Christmas and New Year period

Reactions:

"We have the large Last Supper hanging right at the main entrance door to the sanctuary and so many people have commented on how much they like it.  They look  at it and say, “Well of course there were women children there, but I never thought of it before”.  I had bought that print quite a few years ago and had it hanging in my dining room, but I am getting ready to move to a smaller place and when I offered it to our pastor .... he was really enthusiastic  about it and when I told him about the Pentecost one, he asked me to try to get it for the church".  - Wisconsin, USA

About Nora Kelly's PENTECOST

Some paintings of Pentecost appear to show the tongues of fire descending only on the men present. Yet in the Acts of the apostles it clearly states that the tongues of fire descended on the heads of all those present. Nora Kelly's "Pentecost" was painted in 2002 and shows the powerful wind from heaven and the tongues of fire descending on all the community.

The original painting is oil on canvas and measures 76cm x 107cm (30" x 42").

 

About Emer O'Boyle's MARY OF MAGDALA

Mary of Magdala was the leader of the group of women who followed Jesus and who provided for him out of their own resources.  She stood at the foot of the cross when all the male apostles had run away. She was the first witness that the risen Christ appeared to and He instructed her to tell the good news to the other apostles. Sadly she is more widely regarded as a prostitute, thanks to false statements made about her. Emer O'Boyle's  "Mary of Magdala" was painted in 2003 and shows her in her role as apostle to the apostles, preaching the good news to the apostles and disciples.

The original painting is oil on canvas and measures 59cm x 89cm (23" x 35").
