Licensed in 2012 for use as album artwork for a Christian rock band, donated to charity, licensed by a church for worldwide use in 2024. Artist Statement: "A powerful Lamanite prophet during a period of great Nephite wickedness, Samuel risked his life to warn the nation of the consequences of their choices. Taking refuge on the capitol city’s wall, Samuel was miraculously protected from assault so that he could deliver his message. His actions became the pivot point on which the lives of an entire people turned. My goal with this painting was to highlight Samuel’s faith and the terrible risk he accepted to carry out God’s will. From the Book of Mormon, Helaman 16:1-8."
