Moses: Miracle of Quail -- Three large jars or pots rest on coals amid flames and cauldron hangs from chain over the fire. Man, wearing pointed hat, holds quail on spit over fire. Beside him, man, arms raised, grasps necks of two quails. At right, four men, one wearing pointed hat, three holding food to mouths, sit at draped table, upon which are two bowls. Four men, eyes closed, recline on floor below the table.
