Judith entertains the children

26 Nov

Is it just me, or does anyone find it strange that two small children are in the foreground — one pointing with glee and the other clapping his hands with excitement at the sight of a severed head?

Stefano Erardi, “Judith beheading Holoferenes,” 17th century, Oil on Canvas, Daniel Azzopardi Antiques & Fine Arts, Valletta, Malta

Or a third one is off to the side, ready to catch the head like a wedding bouquet?

Makes me wonder what they do for entertainment on the other days.
