How did you know what she looks like - have you seen her in a vision or something - because I have seen her in a vision or something...? She looks exactly the same...

Such a beautiful, emotive piece.

Please excuse the name of the collection ... I know what I want in that folder, just can't put a name to it.

Hooray! I finnaly got wy-fi! Now I can work on this site without prudes and boors looking over my soulder. The Devout Mormons Veiw all Nudity as porn, and the Fallen away types, or "jack mormons" don't care about the difference, and would misstreat art. This conflict of equel and oposite ignorances has come to a head and now Deviant art is blocked as porn on the comunal computers! I could not get this new system fast enough. Further more, I can finnaly start submitting my own work again, somthing I could not do for some time. In fact, I am reorganizing my whole section, but it will take me a whial. Any way, which of my folders do you think this peice should go in? I am haveing trouble deciding.

You did a wonderful job!

"As for the Wisdom who is called 'the barren,' she is the mother of the angels. And the companion of the Savior is Mary Magdalene. But Christ loved her more than all the disciples and used to kiss her often on her mouth. The rest of the disciples were offended by it and expressed disapproval. They said to him, 'Why do you love her more than all of us?' The Savior answered and said to them, 'Why do I not love you like her?'"
- Gospel of Philip

"...The [Gnostic] Gospel of Mary depicts Mary Magdalene (never recognized as an apostle by the orthodox) as the one favored with visions and insight that far surpass Peter's. The Dialogue of the Savior praises her not only as a visionary, but as the apostle who excels all the rest. She is the 'woman who knew the All'."
- Elaine Pagels, The Gnostic Gospels

A very serene moment it seems,... though sad. Very nice use of color, and I like the softness of this piece.
