Salome - late Gothic
This Salome is by an unknow flemish painter. Its late Gothic and in many parts still medieval.
But the painting already has all the important signs: the executioner with his sword, the head of St. John and the plate, which was very important in art to distinguish Salome from Judith.
Interesting are the two peacocks in the back as symbols of resurrection and immortality.
