MocAthalon: The Last Supper: The Expendables
John 13:21 After he has said this, Jesus was troubled in spirit and testified, "I tell you the truth, one of you is going to betray me."
About this creation

Team: The Expendables
Category: 10. Ars Historia:
Build a iconic scene of human history - once you chosen one, give us an article/proof/evidence for it (wiki/etc.) - in example: the murder of Caesar in 44 BC - please try to avoid WW I and WW II, it's getting boring ;-)



This is the moment captured by Spanish artist Juan de Juanes. Jesus has just washed his disciples feet, then he drops a bombshell on his disciples. One of them is disloyal. The painting captures their reaction to his revelation. Can you tell which one is Judas?




Artsy look.




Juan de Juanes painted his scene of the Last Supper in the 1560's. Can you spot the subtle differences between his and mine?




Side view of an earlier version. The flexible fig techniques used are of particular interest.




Overhead view.




The jug took a long time. It went through three other versions on the way.




Either Judas started his work early, or my son started playing at the Last Supper.

Building notes: I don't think I've ever spent more time on pictures than building before! I didn't time it, but it was probably getting close. Hours of careful minifig and element building, a bit of background, and a whole lot of posing and photographing made this scene what it is.

I want to shout out a thanks to my brother. Our conversation was instrumental in helping me develop the idea for this creation.

Now you've seen it. Go read it! Luke 22:7-20.

Go Team Expendables!

Top stuff, all your builds in this contest so far are really different and really good. Instantly recognisable as the painting! I've always wondered what went through the other disciples' minds when Judas left the supper - surely they must have had some idea what he was up to. Particularly given his scary face :-}

I was fortunate enough to view Leonardo Da Vinci's version on a business trip to Italy a couple years ago. Very powerful moment captured in either painting. You did quite a bit of work to try and capture all of the details here. I commend your efforts. Score= 5

Excellent work sir! Though I usually find it distasteful to use yellow and fleshy "skin-tones" within the same build, it was cleverly done here. Judas really stands out. It's great to have an AFOL presenting Biblical MOCs too! ~Cheers, Ian

The jug technique was quite impressive. It would've been really good if you had used a chrome gold instead of painted gold visor though. Score: 4

Wow, this is great! I'm guessing that Judas is the fleshy skin fig, he looks angry and sticks out like a sore thumb. Brilliant job! :D

Just in time for EASTER! I love the Juan Painting and I loved the way you took us beyond the scenes! I loved your sense of humor at the end!
