Ramakrisna would embarrass his disciples by getting out of carriages to worship the feet of prostitutes as the Divine mother taking on the lust of unsatisfied men in holy, healing work. Jesus saw the humility of Magdalen and revealed the sinners to be equally the customers and condemners.
Mary Magdalen inspires me with her self-possessed sexuality which can teach the feminine mysteries…to share intimate love and acceptance. She is depicted cleansing in solitude in the morning reclaiming herSelf . To me, her Divinity is her humility, so I have shown her on her knees, while utterly sovereign unto herself.
She does not appear in classic Christian saint cards, so I hoped to paint her in that iconic style.
