Samson’s Hare Cup
Inspired by the story of Samson. The play on words with Samson’s hair adds humor to the rabbit frieze on the cup in the center of the painting. Delilah is in warrior pose, surrounded by the tumbling columns of the Philistines. Diane admits that there really were no scissors in Biblical times!
