This is one of four versions of the subject, taken from Matthew 25: 1-13, painted by English Romanticist William Blake. Ten young virgins went out to meet their bridegrooms, but only five were successful in their endeavours, for they were wise enough to remember to bring oil for their guiding lamps. The story is read as a likening to what will eventually become the last judgement.
