Inspired by "Judith Slaying Holofernes" by Artemisia Gentileschi

“Judith Slaying Holofernes” is a painting by the Italian early Baroque artist Artemisia Gentileschi completed between 1614 and 1620. The work shows the scene of Judith beheading Holofernes, common in art since the early Renaissance, as part of the group of subjects art critics have called the "Power of Women", which show women triumphing over powerful men. The subject takes an episode from the apocryphal Book of Judith in the Old Testament, which recounts the assassination of the Assyrian general Holofernes by the Israelite heroine Judith. The painting shows the moment when Judith, helped by her maidservant, beheads the general after he has fallen asleep drunk.
