First artwork from the tryptic of Samson, part of “Anatomy of Brutality” series, based on the famous episode in which the hero fight the lion.
“When he was a young adult, Samson left the hills of his people to see the cities of the Phoenicias. He fell in love with a Phoenicia woman from Timnah, whom he decided to marry, ignoring the objections of his parents, who are unsure if that “it is of the Lord”. In reality, the intended marriage was part of God’s plan to strike at the Phoenicias. On his way to ask for her hand in marriage, Samson is attacked by a lion. He simply grabs it and rips it apart, the spirit of God divinely empowering him. This so profoundly affects Samson, who just keeps it a secret.” • From Wikipedia
