The subject comes from the New Testament. Seated by a well in Samaria, Jesus talks with a local woman. In itself this represents a reconciliation between the Jews and the Samaritans, who were long-term enemies. The woman seeks water to drink, Jesus speaks of the flowing water as a sign on eternal life from God.
