The biblical story of David and the giant Goliath is often depicted in painting. David slew Goliath with a slingshot to the forehead. He then cut of his head, which was the sign to the Israelites to attack. Strozzi's painting shows David's triumphant homecoming. He carries Goliath's head and a sword. Women dance in the background.
