fresco — 1508-1512
Ruth 2:1 - And Naomi had a kinsman of her husband's, a mighty man of wealth, of the family of Elimelech; and his name was Boaz.
Boaz was a wealthy farmer from Bethlehem, married to Ruth. He is one of David's and Jesus' ancestors.

This is one of the frescoes in the arches above the windows in the Sistine Chapel.

In the other half of this arch are Ruth and her son Obed.
