The gorgeous woman has completed her task. She still shows her breasts, used as a bait to capture the obtuse attention of the man, Herod Antipas or Holofernes. She asked the first, intoxicated by her beauty, to have the head of the hated enemy, John the Baptist, who is delivered after the Dance of the Seven Veils. The second (Assyrian or Babylonian general) is seduced and beheaded by Judith who was a resident of the city cruelly besieged by Holofernes.
