In the Christian faith, the Mystical Supper was shared by Jesus and the Twelve Apostles in Jerusalem on the day before Christ’s crucifixion. In the middle of the icon, there is a long round table set with various household items and food. Christ sits at the centre of the table and the beloved disciple, John the Theologian, reclines on His breast. The rest of the disciples sit around the table, displaying their great amazement and disturbance through their different gestures. On the left-hand side of the table, Judas Iscariot sits alone and stretches arrogantly towards the plate in the center of the table to dip his bread. Unlike the other Apostles, who are shown with golden haloes, the halo of Judas is painted in black. In the background, we can see various buildings with domes and towers that make clear that the setting is the upper room in Jerusalem where the Mystical Supper of the Lord took place. This event is celebrated every year on Holy Thursday.
