Mary Magdalene portrait

Mary Magdalene. Graphite on paper. 8 x 11.

Portrait I did based on my own personal idea of what this famous woman of Christianity looked like.

Mary of Magdala was a great woman for Christianity, who has been considered  the 13th disciple of Jesus of Nazareth, according to coptic writings in agnostic gospels. Those same gospels talk about a special relationship between Mary Magdalene and Jesus of Nazareth far beyond our comprehension. And even when such agnostic gospels talk about care and love between Mary Magdalene and Jesus, they still don’t give the full picture.

As a follower of Jesus, Mary Magdalene became the de facto leader for females. If Jesus was the male leader of the new wave of love, Mary Magdalene was the female leader. Because of so many “Marys” in the new testament, her life will be forever clouded or confused.
