Salome: Biblical Girls Will be Biblical Girls

Salome, Ella Ferris Pell, 1890

After identifying Judith you might ask, okay so how do you know if it's Salome? It's a little easier. But unlike Judith Salome is a pawn. But from famous paintings, you might not think so. This is a bit of a defence of Salome. Yes, she probably shouldn't be asking for the heads of holy people, but let us look at the source text before coming to conclusions.
