Donatello's Mary Magdalene - THE most haunting image I have ever seen. I hated leaving her behind. >>> Surely the most startling sculpture to come out of the Renaissance? Rodin would have loved it, I'm certain.
The Church of Mary Magdalene is a Russian Orthodox church located on the Mount of Olives, near the Garden of Gethsemane in East Jerusalem. The church was built in 1886 by Tsar Alexander III to honor his mother, Empress Maria Alexandrovna of Russia.
