Judith with the head of Holofernes

This a "teaser"...

It is the verso of "Judith with the Head of Holofernes" - my first piece of 2013! 

A drawing with embedded digital presentation and which is sure to piss off a lot of anti-Semites when it is shown in NYC next March.

The piece is a contemporary interpretation of the story of Judith.

 In this piece, the severed head of Holofernes rotates every five seconds to change and display a digital image of some of the bad guys around the current countries which were part of the ancient Assyrian Empire and which (a few millennia later) still want to wipe out Israel, as Holofernes once tried until Judith whacked him.

Image of the piece coming soon...
