Judith does a victory dance

05 Feb

All that seducing and hacking and sawing and walking and celebrating.   It is SO tiring.

Bernardo Cavallino, “Judith with the Head of Holofernes.” c.1600, oil on canvas, 101 x 94 cm, Nationalmuseum, Stockholm, Sweden

Me:   So Judith, now that you have decapitated Holofernes and made the Assyrian army flee in fear, what do you plan to do?

Judith:   I’m going to DisneyWorld!!

Me:    Seriously?   That’s a 14-hour flight.   And the lines are really long.

Judith:   Oh … okay.   Then I’m going to Disneyland Paris!!

Me:    France – are you ready for that?

Judith:    Prolly not.    How about Legoland in Denmark?

Me:    Lots of kids.   Lots of plastic.

Judith:    Looks like it is the Statens Historiska Museum in Stockholm for me.   I heard they have an extensive collection of swords from prehistory to the present.   Makes me wonder if they have any Assyrian falchions?   Could be fun to see how Holofernes’ length compares …
