    Link: The Devil`s Last Supper - Artist Bill Flowers recently painted a controversial homage to da Vinci`s famous painting.

    im not ashamed to admit that up until now i always thought tazmania was a made up place and that the tazmanian devil was a made up creature from looney tunes.

    @Squrlz4: it`s "The Devils`"!! Not Devil`s... >-(
    Bad squirrel! Bad!

    I`m glad he didn`t put the central figure in those blue & red robes, that would be a little too much IMO.

    7:45 "...could be too blasphemous..." could have been, but it`s OK. (Again: IMO.)

    @ 5Cats: The singular possessive is what Bill Flowers uses on his YouTube channel, and I think it`s the artist`s call.

    He`s done a number of similar Tasmanian devil takes on famous artworks. I also like this riff on "American Gothic" (below).

    Be Ashamed Rob, be ashamed... I think the Taz devil is a cute lil beastie, much like the Badger :-) Pity about those taz tigers though...

    I kept wanting to see a really good shot of the whole painting and had a difficult time pausing it at a good place. I found this and am posting it here in case anyone else had the same issue...

    Should have used black velvet for a support medium.

    Now we need more animal versions (including a Taz Devil one) of "Nighthawks at the Diner" ...

    @ Drawman61: A local Catholic church leader registered a complaint with the gallery requesting the painting be removed. But after meeting with Flowers and learning how much he loves Tasmanian devils, the official retracted his complaint. The painting then remained in the gallery for the duration of the show (and was sold early on to one of the gallery`s visitors).

    The incident resulted in a lot of anger from some Christians, Catholics particularly, in NW Australia, much of it directed at the editors of the local newspaper *The Advocate*, who reproduced the painting prominently across their front page early in the controversy.

    More here and here.

    @Squrlz4: I think that`s his "New Zealand" accent ;-) It really ought to be Devils` (plural) to make it LESS blasphemous, IMHO!

    Yeah, he`s a funny guy! Did I mention I gave this a "4.0"? :-)

    @ 5cats: Thanks for the 4 stars. Having spent more time on Bill Flowers` website and YouTube channel, I agree that it should be "The Devils` Last Supper." Grammar isn`t Flowers` strong suit. The actual title of the painting (as opposed to the title of the YouTube video) is either "I Hope This Isn`t Their Last Supper" or "We Hope This Isn`t Their Last Supper" (I`ve seen both versions)--references to the facial tumor disease that is wreaking havoc on the Tasmanian devil population.

    An aside: I hope you don`t think I`m trying to get on your case lately, with my responses to the Insanity Island cartoon and the Newsbusted clip. We are on different sides of the aisle politically, so it stands to reason we`re going to disagree periodically. It pleases me that we both seem to be able to disagree, most of the time, without being disagreeable. =^.^=

    @Squrlz4: No worries pal! I think you`re a "good egg". :heart: I too try to not offend you, we`re both "sensitive souls" eh? ;-/

    I try to NEVER let politics & personal grudges influence my ratings. If in doubt? I just won`t vote.

    I give lots of posts 4.0... and occasional 1.0 too. I only mention the best (or worst) in the comments as being "4.0 worthy" :-) And this video was fun!

    I noticed the poc-marks on them, I figured it was from fighting. Now that you mention it? I do remember that. Yeah that disease must suck! Poor critters.

    This Other Post!

    I missed it before! Makes this one much easier to understand, eh?

    My bad! (For missing the other post) I am smarterer now.
