Judith follows instructions

11 Nov

Instruction #1:  After any encounter that involves decapitating a body, run like hell.

Instruction #2:  Drop the lifeless head in a bag before you leave.

Nicolaes van Helt Stockade, “Judith with the Head of Holofernes,” 1634-69, Oil on canvas, 115 × 125 cm, auctioned by Hample 9/22/2006 (Lot 388)

At least van Helt Stockade got one thing right.
