Song of Solomon is one of my favorite books in the bible. When I read it, I try to picture the Lovers in the narrative. From the description, she was a dark beauty and Solomon – well, Solomon’s parents were David and Bathsheba, so he must have been easy on the eyes as well!
This painting captures the essence of his Beloved looking longingly onto her Lover. Chris and I have various scripture versus inscribed, from Song of Songs, in our wedding rings. Mine says SOS 2:14. Look it up! It’s so very cool!
