Peter is warning young John, who is rumoured to be Mary Magdalene, about the danger and prepared a knife in his hand. Judas is shocked. The knife is coming from Judas’ back.
Thomas,James & Philip
Astonished. Philip is asking for an explanation in disbelief.

Jude and Matthew turn to an older disciple in seek of an explanation for such unjust fate facing Jesus.
This piece was made for my father in an old technique of multi-layering, which took over two and half years to complete. The dimensions of this piece are meter and a half by meter. Oil on canvas.
The painting was left to dry in horizontal position after layering to prevent dripping of oil paint. The photo was taken at Olga’s art atelier.
