The Da Vinci Code

Does that look like a man? Well, I don't think so. This, according to The Da Vinci Code, is Mary Magdalene, wife of Jesus Christ. Old news perhaps, but it is new to me [and this is my blog!]. Thou shall put up with me :)
Just got to read the book last week and it was worth the wait. Facts or not, Dan Brown has crafted a beautiful piece of code. He has put Da Vinci's works [is this guy a painter or a photographer?!] under a microscope to decipher things which Leonardo may or may not have intended to convey :)
The Last Supper seems to have a woman to the right of Christ, dressed in opposite colours. [Heard from my sister, however, that in those days men and women both had long hair, and women were not supposed to let their hair out]
The Madonna of Rocks is said to contain something weird too - Baby John blessing Baby Christ!
The author also takes a dig at The Bible, saying that the existing form of Christianity is a hybrid of ancient Christianity and Paganism which the Church refuses to accept. That is the reason, he says, that Christians worship on a Sunday, the holy day of The Sun in Pagan worship.
Ultimately it just turns out that your faith is what you believe in. Nobody is worthy of pointing out the rights and wrongs in it.
