Israeli Photographer Adi Nes does The Last Supper

Adi Nes's Untitled photograph is known in circles as " The Last Super" for obvious reasons. It depicts Israeli soldiers in a mess hall, their poses imitating the supper of Christ and his disciples. The number of Israeli artists with solo shows has been soaring lately. A writer in the NY Times has called the photo a "homoerotic challenge to Israeli machismo" and states the pose refers to a future Christian betrayal...The Christian betrayal I see, but homoeroticism...huh?? Whatchu talkin' bout Times?
