Mary Magdalene, c. 1460

G342expand_more

She may be the Virgin Mary, amazed at the angelic announcement that she will give birth to a son, Jesus. Or she could be Mary Magdalene, surprised to see Jesus in the guise of a gardener after his resurrection from the dead. Either way, she is a key figure in one of two frequently illustrated scenes from the Bible, both highlighting the sudden and unexpected appearance of the divine in everyday life.
