Description
This painting is based on a passage from the Bible: Matthew, Chapter 14. It depicts Salome and her mother Herodias; Salome carries the head of John the Baptist on a plate. Janes sought to integrate his designs into the theme of the painting. Here, the designs in the background and on the subject's garments are meant to refer to the act of decapitation.
