Judgement of Solomon – Rubens


King Solomon of the Old Testament judges the two women who both claim to be the mother of the living baby. When he tells his men to slay the living baby, the real mother says not to slay the baby but the give it to the other woman. This is how he knew who the real mother was, by a mother's sacrifice for her child. This is from the Book of Kings. Artwork by P. Rubens.
