THE LAST SUPPER (LA ÚLTIMA CENA) (1976)



 

"The Orang-Outang carrying off a Negro Girl"  This painting represents as fact the eighteenth-century fable of intercourse between apes and African women.  Beings between apes and humans appear in the background as the offspring of such relations and suggest the missing link in the scale of creatures.  (Taken from White on Black:  Images of Africa and Black in Western Popular Culture by Jan Nederveen Pieterse)
