The Da Vinci Code

NewMexiKen has just finished Dan Brown’s best-seller The Da Vinci Code. It’s an intelligent, fast-paced suspense novel; not perfect, but an intriguing read.

NewMexiKen was fascintated by the references to Da Vinci, Knights Templar and, of course, the Holy Grail.

Particularly Da Vinci, and particularly his famous fresco of The Last Supper. Take a look at the figure just to the right of Jesus, that of “John.” I’d say Da Vinci has a woman present at the Last Supper. What do you think? Who do you think Da Vinci thought she was?

Note: I am not giving anything integral to the suspense of the book away here.
