Additional Info


Mechanical engineering major, BYU. Artist statement: "Ammon, the Diligent Shepherd, unsheathes his sword to protect the flock of sheep. This poignant image draws inspiration from space-filling curves, symbolizing how God's boundless power permeates those earnestly seeking to fulfill His divine will. Just as these abstract curves traverse every point within a given area, Ammon's unwavering devotion fills him with infinite strength and courage. His sword becomes both a physical defense and a representation of the spiritual shield he wields, guiding and guarding the sheep on their earthly journey. This visual narrative illustrates the profound harmony between mortal effort and heavenly aid, revealing how God's omnipotence fortifies those who earnestly follow His path."
