All that planning and plotting, feasting and drinking, seducing and slaying can wear out a woman.
This is a new perspective on Judith, and I congratulate the artist for giving her a new look. Blonde and fully dressed, she does not appear to be the seductress often depicted in contemporary art. Her violence is implied with the residual blood on her feet, the wall, the bedcovers. And the frenzy is gone. She can now relax for a moment before heading back to Bethulia. Although she should not tarry too long, I can relate to a well-deserved nap.
