Judith 🔪🧠💫🙏🏼. A widow with not a thing to lose steps up amongst a terrified village and gets on the townsquare's soapbox. They are suffering from the wrath of Gen. Holofernes. She assures them that she will put an end to their problems. She sticks to that promise like a true #rideordie . That evening Judith lures the out of control Assyrian General Holofernes to bed after he overindulges in wine n greazy turkey legs like a greedy pig and decapitates his ass with the help of her old biddy handmaiden to hold the burlap sack for the head. #shadylady #queen #whoruntheworld #judith #morbidart #catholicism #creepy #gothic #decapitation #artofnapoles #bossbitch #takethebullbythehorns #bethulia #holofernes

Apologies for my absence I’ve been generally dying. I thought this evening that I’d like to share a detail from my favourite piece of art from Gustav Klimt. Judith (1901) is a masterpiece of sexuality, power and lavish violence. What you can’t see in this detail is Holofernes’ head, green dead and held casually against her hip. The power is hers through her revenge over her rapist and the simmering potency. Women may suffer, but we will vanquish or tormentors #klimt #judith #holofernes #gilt #art #womenempowerment #revenge #power #womenspower

Artemisa Gentileschi (1593-1654), italiana, fue una destacada pintora del barroco, difusora del "caravaggismo". Iniciada en la pintura por su padre, también artista, su talento y energía le permitieron dedicarse al arte en un mundo de hombres; hoy es, en general, poco conocida...
