Commentary in Italian - but the images are compelling...
Slavisa Pesci, an information technologist and amateur scholar, says superimposing the "Last Supper" with its mirror-image throws up another picture containing a figure who looks like a Templar knight and another holding a small baby.
"I came across it by accident, from some of the details you can infer that we are not talking about chance but about a precise calculation," Pesci told journalists when he unveiled the theory earlier this week
Below are comments provided by LucidQuest (Italy - thank you):
"Hi, really appreciate this video.
I'm italian, so I give you a quick translation, adding some
comments, as I got a good image of the Last Supper and
managed to make the same actions under a graphic application.
1. The comment says that there are hidden meanings in the Da Vinci painting, true as he was into secret societies.
2. The operation done by Mr. Pesce is simple but leads to interesting results. You need a program as Adobe Photoshop to do the following: load the image, duplicate it and mirror it. Now put the duplicate on the upper layer and change the visibility to 50%
Here comes the best part: move the overimposed layer aside and then move it again while looking the man at the extreme
left. It is stunning: the figure changes as a hat and the colors change. He seems to be a Templar.
Then Pesci says that even Jesus color changes to red and a Grail appears, so the picture should *not* be the Last Supper but the Episode of Bread and Fishes.
Hope you get what I wrote. I personally was impressed in the really moment when overimposing the left figure as it
appears as a genius puzzle IMHO
The Grail and the baby hold by Magdalene do not seem too clear to me.
Must add that these techiniques were well known to Mayan artists, as we can still appreciate in sculptures.
You just need a good image and a graphic application that
can load many layers to handle this - The GIMP is a free one for example."
