La Sainte Bible: The Levite carries away the body of the woman

Artist name: Dore Gustave

The Levite, seen from behind, carries his concubine’s body on a donkey; He heads towards the city, raising his hand as in an oath. Above him a white cloud lights the city, symbolizing the Levite’s hope for vengeance.
