Deborah rides sideways ca. 1244-1254

Sisera: Battle against Barak — Deborah rides sideways, holding reins of dappled horse with harness decorated with bells. With right hand, she directs soldiers including Barak, some wearing visors, one with helmet, all armed with swords, lance, and shield, some mounted. They attack Sisera, crowned, with sword in right hand, and soldiers, all in mail, in chariots drawn by horses with trappings, including stirrups. Illustration of Judges 4:10-16.
