Lucas van Leyden: The dance of Maria Magdalena (1519)

(Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam, The Netherlands)

A nice drawing by the famous Dutch artist Lucas van Leyden (1494-1533). This drawing shows the life of Maria Magdalena before her conversion to Christianity. Maria Magdalena is seen dancing in the foreground and hunting in the background. At the mountaintop you can see the ascension of Maria Magdalena by 4 angels. Drawing from 1519.
