Aubusson tapestry: Judith and Holofernes, 17th century

Aubusson tapestry depicting the assassination of Holofernes, General of Nebuchadnezzar, by Judith.
Exceptional freshness of abundant and contrasting colors. Beautiful frieze.
The tapestry is doubled and cleaned by a specialist. Easy attachment with Velcro strap.
According to a cardboard by Chaupineaux Père.
Marked at the bottom of the royal manufactories.

The story is taken from the Old Testament. During a campaign wreaked havoc in the Middle East, Holofernes besieges Bethulie, a Jewish city. Judith, a young widow takes advantage of her intelligence and beauty to charm the general. With her servant, they are invited to a big banquet. In the night, Judith will wait until Holofernes is unable to defend himself in order to decapitate him.
The artistic representations of this scene, as on our tapestry, highlight the dangerousness of the sensual charm of the woman to whom men succumb too easily, like Holofernes.
