King Saul and David painting on velvet


I had this large Biblical scene painting folded up and stored in a cabinet for the longest time. Finally, I couldn't stand to see it hidden away any longer and took it to the framer. The shepherd boy David plays his harp to soothe the volatile King Saul. Among the king's peeves -- the popularity of David, who killed the giant Goliath and thus had become more popular than the jealous king. The painting is 53 inches wide and 33 inches high. The old velvet is no longer soft.
