The Biblical David and A Maenad

My posts are getting a little more frequent at the moment. This is yet more art. Two images. The first is by the Italian Baroque painter Domenico Fetti, and is titled The Young David Gathering Stones for his Slingshot. Portraying the David of biblical fame with red hair.

This next one is by the Ukrainian-born Polish painter Witold Pruszkowski. It's a little more difficult to discern the red hair in this one, but it's quite a beautiful image :)

Maenads were female followers of Dionysus in Greek mythology.
