Beltane 2015 and the moon is on the wane above the tall trunks of the beech trees found along the shady banks of the River Salz. Mary Magdalen left the Holy Land and came to France with the Mother of God. Alone, in silence she spent thirty years in a wooded space, through which a river ran centrally, hills and mountains were surrounding. This is a painting of that space, identified as the Valley of the River Salz.
