Judith with her Maid – Ghirlandaio

 Judith of the old Testament, having beheaded the Assyrian general Holofernes to save her people, leaves the general's tent, accompanied by her maid, who carries the severed head of Holofernes in a basket. Judith looks at the head, in the basket atop her servant's head, while carrying her sword. This artwork is by Ghirlandaio.
