"Out of the strong came forth sweetness"
Samson's riddle is a riddle that appears in the biblical narrative about Samson. Samson wagered a riddle to thirty Philistine guests, in these words: "Out of the eater, something to eat; out of the strong, something sweet". Instead of a fair riddle that could be discerned with deduction, the riddle was based on a private experience of Samson who killed a young lion and after a while found bees and honey in its corpse. "What is sweeter than honey? What is stronger than a lion?" is the answer to the riddle.

End Table. Literature inspired hand-illustrated, painted, splattered and scraped, welded steel plate.
