Mary Magdalene's Perfume Bottle
First of four pictures for Passiontide.
This idea started because the lolita fashion brand called Mary Magdalene, unlike many of the others, doesn't have a whole lot of pictorial prints, but one that they do have is called Perfume Bottle, and it occurred to me, does that have anything to do with their name-patron's actions? So I decided to draw that scene, which is the Gospel for Monday of Holy Week, with her wearing the Perfume Bottle one-piece dress. And then it became about Judas' hypocritical avarice, and how Marxist Modernists who emulate it really just want to give God ugliness. Here's a good article about that.
