Additional Info


Accounting major, BYU. Artist statement: "Mormon is inscribing his record into the plates. I thought that a linocut would be appropriate seeing that each character would have been carved into the plates. The first three lines contain the words "Jehovah" or "Yahweh" in differing versions of Hebrew and hieroglyph. The other characters are based on Egyptian hieroglyph and the Reformed Egyptian characters Joseph Smith recorded from the plates. "
