Johannes Spilberg
Portrait of a Lady as Jael

Gemäldegalerie, Berlin

Dressed as an aristocrat of the 17th century, Jael holds the hammer and tent peg that she used to kill the enemy general Sisera (Judges 4:17-22). Unlike most portraits and narrative images, which follow Judges 5:26, "She put her left hand to the nail, and her right hand to the workman's hammer…," this Jael is left-handed.
