Judas also features in the scene  in which the magdalen anoints Christ’s feet. He is generally portayed as a man of mature years with dark hair and a beard and is sometimes dark complexioned . Among the twelve he was the steward and may therfore hold  a purse. In medieval and early  renaissance art a demon sits on his shoulder whispering satan’s words in his ear, rather in the way that adove may often be seen at the ear of a  god’s message.
