Call the Hawkmen!
Fight fellow earthmen, fight to your last breath! Let Ming know we will not let the Isle of Mann fall into his evil clutches.
The Awakening Conscience, William Holman Hunt 1851-53, Oil on canvas, 29 1/4 x 21 5/8 inches
"The Awakening Conscience is the most explicitly Hogarthian of his early works, in part because it makes extensive use of texts on the frame and within the picture itself. Furthermore, this painting, which may derive directly from a work by Hogarth, also depicts a contemporary moral subject, and it employs a pervasive integrated symbolism in imitation of the earlier master. Equally important, at least part of its complex intention is to view contemporary mores from the vantage point of satire. What so complicates our reaction to this companion to The Light of the World is that, although it links religious and satirical themes, it does not merge them as did The Hireling Shepherd, which is a religious satire. Instead, at the same time that it presents the young woman's moment of illumination, it satirizes her wealthy seducer."
Hunh. I did not see that. I thought she was having a good time. How typical of me to miss the boat so completely.
