Notes

Artist Statement: "Growing up in America while Jesus Christ lived in Israel, the prophet Nephi has just spent three days face-to-face with the resurrected Savior. He now heads home from the city Bountiful’s temple having just seen the Son of God ascend into Heaven. Chosen the lead the people into a new era of peace and joy, he ponders the marvelous and life-changing events of the last few days. An extrapolation of events in the Book of Mormon, 3 Nephi 11-28."
