Here’s another one of my Bible book paintings, this time about 1. and 2. Kings. The picture shows King Salomon and all the kings that came after him.
Salomon was the last king of the united monarchy and – according to Kings – was a major reason the kingdom split after his death. The left side pictures the northern kingdom of Israel, which ended up in Assyrian exile, and the right side pictures the southern kingdom of Judah, which ended up in Babylon.
