Judith Places the Head of Holofernes in a Bag

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

Judith, having just beheaded Holofernes, places his head in a bag with the help of her servant. She is holding a curved sword, or scimitar and is wrapped in robes that cover her head. Her servant is also clothed in voluminous robes. A shield and scabbard hang from the bedpost. Holofernes’ body lies partially on the bed (left). Heavy curtains hang from the bed frame. A doorway in the background opens on to the city.
