The Museum's Salome Earrings are based on detailed ornamentation from Renaissance painter Andrea Solarios (Italian, active by 1495, died 1524) Salome with the Head of Saint John the Baptist. The painting depicts the moment in the Gospel of Mark (6:2128) when the young Salome, daughter of Herod's wife Herodias, is granted her wish to have John the Baptist executed. The Salome exhibits some astonishing effects, including the reflections and sheen of the silver basin, the transparent bodice of Salome's dress, and the delicacy of description of John the Baptists head. Above all, Salome's jewelry and the ornamentation of her dress are imagined and painted with the utmost precision and care.
