I nearly fell off my chair the first time I saw this. It’s an illustration by George Becker of Rizpah defending the bodies of her sons, which have been left out to be eaten by animals and birds. She spent five months doing this, until they finally got a decent burial.
Sez Wikipedia: “British rabbi Jonathan Magonet has described Rizpah as ‘every mother who sees her sons killed before their time for reasons of state, be they in time of peace or in war. All that remains is for her to preserve the dignity of their memory and live on to bear witness and call to account the rulers of the world’.”
You could probably just about squeeze this story into God’s Little Princesses (though not Becker’s illustration!), since Rizpah is being a Good Mother and, like Tamar, showing up the crappy men who essentially own her.
