Rachel is weeping for her children, 14th century fresco from Marko’s Monastery.

Matthew 2:18, citing Jeremiah 31:15

18 In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not.

15 Thus saith the Lord; A voice was heard in Ramah, lamentation, and bitter weeping; Rachel weeping for her children refused to be comforted for her children, because they were not.
