Mary Magdalene is a powerful figure in the Bible and a mysterious one. I had a dream of Mary Magdalene and in the dream she asked me to paint her as the true women she really was. This led me to do extensive research about her. I learned that she never was a prostitute but instead a wise and learned women. There is strong evidence to believe that she was a student of Jesus.
In 1896 a manuscript was found in Cairo, Egypt. It was called the Teachings of Mary Magdalene. It was eventually translated by scholar Jean-Yves Leloup. This scholar carefully and lovingly worked with every single word of the manuscript to bring us an amazing glimpse into Mary Magdalene’s life. Showing us she was a scholar and a very spiritual women and a teacher of principles of wisdom. In this document she was called the “Woman Who Knew All”.
I painted her in bright red, as it is a color associated with vibrancy and vitality. Her head is decorated with a golden veil as a symbol of precious knowledge. She holds a chalice in her hands with a Tree of Life on it to show her knowledge of wisdom. I paid close attention to depicting her face with grace and compassion, attributes she is said to have display often in her life’s journey.
