Daniel in the Lions’ Den
oil on panel — 1757 Museum Museo Civico, Udine
This work is linked to Bel and the Dragon 1:36
This is the apocryphal version of the story of Daniel in the Lions’ Den. The prophet Habakkuk is told to bring food to Daniel, who is in the lions’ den of Babylon. Habakkuk is willing to help, but he has never been to Babylon. Then an angel takes him by his hair and brings him to the den.
Daniel had been thrown into the den by an angry mob because he had killed the dragon they adored.
