I'm fascinated by Andrea del Sarto's charming portrayal of John the Baptist -- and by Salome's Dance of the Seven Veils
John the Baptist, by Andrea del Sarto, 1528
"living austerely, challenging sinful rulers, calling for repentance, and promising God's justice"
"Christian traditions depict [Salome] as an icon of dangerous female seductiveness".
