Transcript of Queen of Sheba and Solomon Allusions

The Gift of the Magi, a well-known story by O. Henry, alludes to the biblical story of King Solomon and Queen of Sheba by telling the story of a couple who exchanges gifts. Both stories explore the theme of the interaction of wealth and love. Gift of the Magi This biblical story is alluded to in one of the important Masonic traditions, the ceremony of the Board of Installed Masters. This ceremony addresses parts of the Bible story, including quotes such as "his fame concerning the Lord" and "the immensity of his court", which relate to Solomon and the Queen's intentions for visiting him. Masonic Traditions Allusions to the Queen of Sheba and Solomon are made in many famous paintings, sculptures, and other artwork. Most depict a wealthy man and woman sharing gifts with each other, typically surrounded by symbols of wealth or people. Artwork Handel composed a song inspired by the story of King Solomon and Queen Sheba, titled "Arrival of the Queen of Sheba". This composition features happy music that depicts the story of the Queen's visit. Song- Arrival of the Queen of Sheba by Georg Friedrich Handel I will dance for you and take away your pain
And in return I ask for nothing
This gentle kindness I give to you for free
As all my wealth in truth amounts to nothing
But I have questions that will put you to the test
Without the answers my soul will never rest
The Queen of Sheba
In perfume and gold
She seeks the answers
Of wisdom untold
I kiss you softly to take away the pain
And in return I ask for nothing
But still I have these questions that weigh upon my breast
And without the answers my soul will never rest
The Queen of Sheba
In perfume and gold
She seeks the answers
Of wisdom untold
The Queen of Sheba
In perfume and gold
Has seen the answers
As a new world unfolds Song- Queen of Sheba by Mastermind
