The 400-year-old painting underwent a two year restoration before going on display at P&D Colnaghi & Co art dealership in London. The well-preserved canvas shows the beheading of Assyrian general Holofernes by Judith, from the Book of the Apocryhpa in the Bible. Judith was a widow from the city of Bethulia, under siege by Holofernes' army.
To save her city, she seduced the general in his tent before beheading him.
