Ron Burns, who specializes in canine-themed art, has just painted a doggone version of The Last Supper featuring various dog breeds sitting in for Jesus, Judas and the various apostles.
The painting is officially titled Dinner And Drinks With The Son Of Dog and features Burns own dog a mutt named Rufus sitting in Jesus chair.
He jokes that using a mutt makes the paintings message more inclusive than if he chose a purebreed.
Burns will officially unveil the original painting later today (Mar. 22) at a Scottsdale, Arizona, and its expected to sell for $65,000.
He figures copies of the painting will be popular, but not with everyone.
As he puts it, The churches probably wont embrace it. But I think dog lovers will. Theyre more forgiving.
