Acclaimed for her Venetian glass mosaics depicting powerful women of Judeo-Christian belief, Vancouver artist Lilian Broca has now turned her attention to the New Testament character of Mary Magdalene. Based on years of research, poring over ancient manuscripts in Ethiopia, Israel and Greece, Broca has uncovered previously obscured aspects of Mary Magdalene’s story and represents her here not as a fallen woman in need of redemption but as an individual of strength, resourcefulness and valued companionship.
