Paris Spectacular Wax Museum- Salome and the Head of St. John the Baptist

This scene is inspired by the painting by Moreau. Princess Salome was the daughter of Herod Philippus, and the niece of Herod Antipas. At the instigation of her mother, Herodias, Salome obtained the head of Saint John the Baptist, from her uncle.

Here we see John the Baptists severed head served on a silver platter.

A close up of the quite revealing figure of Salome as she admires the head.
