Did the poker game come after supper?
This doggie-style reworking of The Last Supper is an advertisement for OIPA, the Organizzazione Internazionale Protezione Animali (the International Organization for the Protection of Animals).
I’m no art critic, but I’d have to put it right up there with that classic, Dogs Playing Poker.
Only one human appears in the work – Judas.
The copy, translated, reads: “One of you betrays us 150,000 times every year.”
Apparently, it’s a reference to the number of dogs euthanized each year in Italy.
