    pierce through

    Miss Heliotrope's appearance was really very odd, and it just shows how penetrating were Maria's silvery eyes that they had pierced through it so very soon. Most people, when confronted with Miss Heliotrope's nose and style of dress, stopped there and could not get any further.


    Could you explain me that sentence in red?

    Maria has very penetrating eyes; the rapidity with which they saw through Miss Heliotrope's appearance proves just how penetrating they are.
