nagfa ambigram challenge (NAC) December 2008

Hi and salam to all!
At last, the compilation for NAC December 2008. Our Guest Challenger was Alessandro Pocaterra from Italy and the theme was Leonardo Da Vinci.
Before we showcase the submitted entries, we present Alessandro's own solution (below). It is a reflection ambigram reading 'Da Vinci', which at the same time, depicts a stylised rendition of the the famous 'The Last Supper'. Jesus in the centre with two of his apostles to his left and right.

Thanks to Alejandro for choosing my ambigram! It's a honor to me, especially if this is the last NAC.

It's kind of sad that this game has to stop, but I understand well Nagfa's reasons... maybe three years ago some of us could dedicate much more time to this kind of things, but it's getting harder. Anyway, I'm really thankful to Nagfa for organizing this contests, they were a gerat experience. If someone starts a new one, please let me know.

Thank you, Homero. I understand it is a bitter sweet victory. Your 'White Rabbit' NAC will be cherished.

Hi, Diego.
Though it'll always be better and fulfilling (and we still encourage it) to have your oww blog / webpage, yes, you may.

We will post your works, if you email them to us.

Thank you, Diego.
