It is said, in some ancient texts, that Mary Magdelene was the beloved of Christ, even his Wife. There is also a story that she came originally from Egypt, educated there in the rites of Osiris and Isis, later recognizing that Jesus and herself were the incarnations of that sacred Pair. They are shown here on the day of their Marriage, standing between two Egyptian columns which represent their spiritual counterparts--Mary beside the column of Isis, with her sacred symbols, and Jesus beside the column of Osiris, with his sacred heiroglyphs.

This piece was created for the Sacred & Profane gallery show at Alvida Art Gallery, and was rather controversial in content. I cannot say for certain that such a marriage took place, but I do find the concept an interesting one. My son, Merlin, posed for Jesus, and a lovely Panamanian girl, a friend of mine, Rosie, was the model for Mary, with her big eyes and long, flowing hair.
