Instinctive Critical Acumen
George du Maurier
(25 March 1893): 138
“That looks like an old Picture, John! What is it? ”
“It’s ‘Moses Striking the Rock’!”
“Ah! I told you it was Old – Didn't I, now!”
DuMaurier's character here shows that "Moses Striking the Rock," one of the most popular Victorian religious symbols, was still recognized -- whether or not it was interpreted in the usual way.
