I actually had finished this triptych's opened panels c. 2004 - 6. Then a few years later I finally completed the back side panels of The Cloisters/Venus and Pope's Workout c. 2009.  The Last Supper/Inversion of The Sacred was in progress c. 2004. I did the research re how Da Vinci's pulley system worked. Then eventually I was able to figure out my own pulley system so that I could lift and hang the heavy panels of the top portion all by myself.

I used to start a triptych painting on smoothly sanded Gessoed panels. But eventually I decided to paint after the panels were mounted in gold leaf frames. This way had helped me see the tones and values as well as how the composition evolved. The Last Supper/Eve and Giant Squid Hunters (center) and The Last Supper/Inversion of The Sacred (right) are in progress. c. 2007.
