The New Da Vinci Code
If those of you who haven't seen the news about "The New Da Vinci Code" can hit the article link. The basic theory is that a superimposed mirror image of Da Vinci's Last Supper placed on itself yields some interesting figures that pop out. The article claims that there is a man holding a baby and a Templar Knight in the mix. I've done some "Photoshopping" of the image of the fresco myself and here's what I've come up with. The first image is of the original in the background and the mirror image at a 50% transparency placed on top. The second image is the exact same using the inverse color filter. There does appear to be a image of something or someone in the center. I'll leave the rest up to you as always. The image comes from the Wiki article on The Last Supper and lists the image as having an expired copyright. Click on the image for a larger version.
