Inscriptions/Signature

On the facing left side is a standing nude female figure, identified as Judith, holding in her proper left hand a decapitated head wearing a military hat. In her proper right hand she holds a sword with red blood on the end of it. "Sainte-Wehme" is inscribed on the sword. At the bottom facing right corner is a crowd of people in the background, waving their hands at her, including people who are raising crutches in the air.
