The Queen of the South
"Queen of the South is an alternative title for the Queen of Sheba. The phrase Queen of the South is used in the New Testament and is attributed to Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is quoted in the Bible as to have said "The queen of the South will rise up at the judgment with the men of this generation and condemn them, for she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon, and behold, something greater than Solomon is here." (Matthew 12: 42) (Luke 11: 31) Gasc mentions the Queen of the South as one of the mysteries in her paintings.
