article imageNew Secrets in The Last Supper?

Yet another historian believes they have found new secrets in one of Leonardo Da Vinci's most famous works, "The Last Supper". This painting has recently received an increase of publicity due to it's reference in Dan Brown's book "The Da Vinci Code".
Slavisa Pesci, an information technologist and amateur scholar has a theory that if you take the mirror image of the painting and superimpose it over the original you will discover a new figure that resembles a Knight Templar of fame holding an infant. He also says that a goblet placed in front of Christ becomes visible in the superimposed version.
Pesci is quoted as stating "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,".
He doesn't suggest that the infant is Christ's child, but leaves that for the readers speculation.
Pesci's theory goes on to say that this new image depicts Christ blessing bread and wine for the first Eucharist, rather than illustrating Christ naming who will betray him.
