This is based on the famous story of the woman caught in adultery in John 8 in the bible. I wanted to contrast the ugly black and white of the hard stones, rocks, faces and hearts of the religious system wanting to put her to death and the woman’s beauty, color, softness and vulnerability. She’s looking off to her right. Jesus is saying something. I’m calling her Sophia.
