Piece Five in my HSC body of work. 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 Annointment” refers to Mary Magdelane’s annointment of the body of Christ.
