Title of Liberty

Additional Info


Photo + Lens-Based Design major, BYU. Artist statement: ""Title of Liberty" is a photographic representation of the standard and banner created by Captain Moroni when defending the people of Nephi from Amalickiah and his army. The words which Moroni wrote inspired power and faith in his people, and continue to give hope to Latter-day Saints today. I wanted to depict these words, and the title itself, in the most accurate recreation possible, to pay homage to the language and culture of the Nephites. The characters seen are from the Paleo-Hebrew script, also known as Old Hebrew. Thanks to historians and religious scholars, and references in the Book of Mormon itself, I imagined a similar writing system might have been used by Book of Mormon peoples at this time. (The translation of the Title of Liberty into Old Hebrew was provided by Donald W. Parry, Professor of Hebrew Bible and Dead Sea Scrolls at Brigham Young University.)"
