Teddy Bear Judith Beheading Holofernes
Based on Gentileschi's "Judith Slaying Holofernes" (for her determined Judith) and Caravaggio's painting of the same scene (for Holofernes reaction). It is based on a story from an apocryphal book of the Old Testament, showing Judith and her maid beheading the Assyrian general Holofernes. Gentileschi’s version is probably the most brutal version of the scene, and with some reason: she has painted herself as Judith, and Holofernes is Agnostino Tassi, her mentor who stood trial for raping her, but was acquitted.
