Mary Magdalene SangReal. Oil on canvas. 95 cm x 115 cm. Mary Magdalene, the Apostle, the closest and most devoted disciple of Jesus Christ and possibly his girlfriend and wife. Texts in the Bible suggest that after his crucifixion she may have been the first to discover the empty shroud in the Garden Tomb that bore only traces of his body. Mary still felt strongly his presence in the cave which could later be described as his resurrection. She may later have given birth to his child which continued the royal bloodline. Sangreal. Mary is canonized as a Saint in several major denominations.
