  • Return to Bethulia (Regreso a Betulia)
    After achieving her aim of killing the enemy leader, both women return to Bethulia carrying the head of the Assyrian general in a pouch.

    When Judith entered Bethulia (Judith13, 10-13), her neighbors were surprised at her unexpected return. They all gathered around her, surrounding her eager to know what had happened.


    The tapestry shows Judith and her handmaid before Oziah, one of the governors of Bethulia, in a simple architectural environment suggesting the inner city. There are groups of figures in surprised and talkative attitude around the main characters, as shown by their gestures and countenances, undoubtedly commenting on Judith’s return.
