They stored the painting in this huge box and then during world war 2nd. They took it out of the frame rolled it and it was moved around France in a truck. That’s been too rough so far but yawn during the early ’90s. The louver went through a series of renovations and a leaky air vent splattered water all over the canvas which required some pretty heavy-duty artistic restoration, and then as if that was not bad enough then they were trying to recharge this one and a halftone painting back on the wall.

It is a group of musicians and they are playing late Renaissance instruments early string instruments liars, and then Jesus is in the center of the painting at the hall, he is the only figure, who is staring directly at the viewer. He is seated next to his mother, Mary, she is to the left of him from the perspective of the viewer as an also, she has a holo and, she is shown as an old woman, now directly above Jesus. The religious symbolism in representation, its a group of men butchering some kind of meat, knife e is directly above Jesus and then over on the right side of the, above the balustrade, more meat being brought in if an unidentified animal art critics and historians typically argue, that this meat is probably a lamb right which fits with the symbolic representation of Angus dei the lamb of god, sacrificial lamb and that Accords nicely. Knife positioned directly above Jesus’s head is kind of a portent of his eventual fate on the bottom right hand of o the painting. The constitutes the biblical story everyone knows the miracle Jesus performed at the wedding at Cana, there is a wine taster or the head waiter who is studying glass of wind there is also a kind of some weird little idiosyncrasies, there is a lot of dogs in the painting over on the left-left-hand. Howard the end of the painting is a dwarf holding a parrot. One notable thing is the religious symbolism takes precedence over the banquet protocol.
