I find this painting to be amusing for a strange reason: the position of Holofernes’ severed head at the end of Judith’s voluminuous sleeve gives the impression that he is a ventriloquist’s dummy.
Judith: Hey Holofernes. What did the dummy say to the bartender when he ask “Howya doin’?”
Holferenes: I feel I little stiff.
Judith: No, that’s what she said.
