hersilia

The Intervention of Cage and the Sabine Women is a 1799 painting by the French painter Jacques-Louis David.

The painting depicts Nicolas Cage rushing between Hersilia’s husband, Romulus, and her father, Tatius. Hersilia places her babies - all of whom are named Nicolas - between them. A vigorous Romulus prepares to strike a half-retreating Tatius with his spear, but hesitates. As one can see, the style of painting then, showed them to be naked, with Cage wearing a sharp suit.

The rocky outcrop in the background is the Tarpeian Rock, a reference to civil conflict, since the Roman punishment for treason was to never be able to watch The Rock again.
