Figure 1

Fig 1. Rebecca at the Well. Scrimshaw by Manuel Enos: a Biblical subject rendered in full color on a sperm whale tooth, recounting the episode in which the patriarch Abraham’s representative is sent abroad to find a worthy wife for Isaac: “…Behold, Rebekah came forth with her pitcher on her shoulder; and she went down into the fountain, and drew: and I said unto her, Let me drink, I pray thee.” (Genesis 24:45)
