#319 The Endearing Truth

Wine, bread, apples, & a
question of perception. What
stands out? The alcoves or
the painted table? The text-
ured wall? So. Focus on the
contents. Discard the bread
& wine—they're simply tricks
of a trade. Then wonder why

there are no fishes. Were
there ever any or does their
replacement by the apples re-
write the parables? Does this
miraculous piece of trompe l'oeil
infer there were no miracles?
