Women in the Book of Judges II

William Blake   -  
The Sacrifice of Jephthah’s Daughter
Jephthah kneels in front of altar with arms outstretched. His nude daughter kneels above on the altar between a tambourine and a harp. She clasps her hands together in prayer, surrounded with light. Women lament at both sides of the altar. Dark clouds hover above.
