The V space (herinafter called, simply, the V) yes, represents a downward arrow. However it also symbolizes something new or novel that only gets
better and better as it expands and grows, like ripples in a pond or like soundwaves from a rung bell.., so it represents both a downward causation
and an emergent one, from the bottom up so to speak. It is both a descending and ascending phenomenon and in the context of this scene, a fresh start
and a new beginning, or simply put, heaven on earth, made manifest. Yes, as above, so below, meaning that heaven, to BE heaven must be made 1st
manifested on Earth, so Jesus still has a lot of (soon to be) happy work to do, on the other side of all the sorrow, suffering, pain and heartache,
and betrayal, this side of the cross, and tomb, eh?
The V is also quite simply a V for "Victorious", a word applicable to da Vinci's time, and intended audiance, certaintly, and that's something anyone
can see and understand, in noting the V.
But more importantly, to me, is the love relationship that is implied (where the bottom of the V implies a touch and a contact, under the table..as
above so below..?), for which a marriage union is the best mataphor however explicit or implicit the reference being made.
