A page from the facsimile edition of Burne-Jones' Flower Book, one of 38 watercolour designs reproduced by Henri Piazza et Cie, for the Fine Art Society, London in 1905. Uerscheln incorrectly identifies the plant as pyracanth, but there is an tree called 'burning bush' or 'fire tree', which is arrow wood or wahoo [sic] bark (Euonymus atropurpureus). Burne-Jones recreates a similar composition of Moses and the burning bush in a stained glass window at St. Brycedale's Church, Kirkcaldy, Fife (north side, east-most window, 1892).
