Possibly the most fitting Anti-Valentine’s Day imagery of all time. Treat yourself or someone near you to the incredible Baroque interpretation of one woman taking matters (and heads) into her own hands. Artemesia Gentileschi’s Judith Slaying Holofernes is possibly the most iconic interpretation of this Biblical tale of vengeance, and possibly the darkest. Snag something from our collection below.
Lord God, to whom all strength belongs, prosper what my hands are now to do for the greater glory of Jerusalem; for now is the time to recover your heritage and to further my plans to crush the enemies arrayed against us. — Judith’s prayer before beheading Holofernes (Judith 13:4-5)
