This is an original 1903 halftone print of a painting titled, "Discovery of the Body of Holofernes." The original artwork had been held at the Uffizi Gallery in Florence.

The coastal invading general Holofernes was the object of great revenge after he forced the Jewish people of the conquered lands to solely worship the god Nebuchadnezzar. One evening, the Hebrew widow Judith rescued the captive Bethulia from Holofernes' camp after seducing and beheading Holofernes. After the beheading, the Hebrews were able to defeat his men. This image shows Holofernes' men discovering his decapitated body.
