This is the first piece in my HSC major works. The series in total is called “Ascendancy” which means domination or influincing figure, but also has connotations to the ascention of Mary in Christianity. Basically what i tried to do was to show how humanity’s expression of faith has changed, evolved, or even stayed the same. “The Betrayal” is basically a contemporary version of the betrayel of Jesus my Judas.
