The judges of ancient Israel were known as biblical judges, and they were viewed as rulers or military leaders who presided over legal hearings. Samson was the last of the judges, and his many feats include defeating an entire Philistine army with the jawbone of a donkey and single handedly bringing a Philistine temple to the ground with his bare hands and brute strength.
It is the story of the lion though that is among the most riveting. In this tale, Samson walks through the vineyards near Timnath and was set upon by a massive beast. As the roar of a lion shattered the air, the ferocious creature emerged from the shadows with fangs dripping in blood. It is said that in the moment, Samson’s body was emboldened by the power of the Divine Holy Spirit, giving him more strength than any other man on Earth.
The 20 oz Antique Finish Silver Samson and the Lion Statue is based upon the classical work of Cristoforo Stati, an Italian sculptor of Christian imagery from antiquity.
