This series is inspired by the allusion of "Mary Magdalene" from Bible. It symbolizes the transition of female roles in our history (from the images of "abandoned, fallen or fatal" to "neutral, respectable, or spiritual"). It could also indicate the struggle of the collective human's souls, in the endless seesaw battles between "Humanity and Beastliness", "Goodness and Evil" and "Moral and Degeneration".

Story

This series is inspired by the allusion of "Mary Magdalene" from Bible. It symbolizes the transition of female roles in our history (from the images of "abandoned, fallen or fatal" to "neutral, respectable, or spiritual"). It could also indicate the struggle of the collective human's souls, in the endless seesaw battles between "Humanity and Beastliness", "Goodness and Evil" and "Moral and Degeneration". Unlike God, human beings are afflicted by many weaknesses. We often err and are driven by instinctive impulse and desires. Our souls are confined and held back by our bodies, unable to attain true freedom. On the other hand, unlike animals, we are also endowed with rationality and spirituality, the "Divinity" shared by God, allowing us to transcend the shackles of our physicality and liberalize us to the state of more divine existence.
