Abstract

In a biblical scene from the book of Judges, Jephthah's daughter comes out to greet her triumphant warrior father, only to realize that he has promised to sacrifice to God, whatever comes out of his house to meet him when he returns. This image is unique in that it portrays a triangle having rings with pellet-bells attached.
