Lehi’s Vision of the Tree of Life
The fruit of the tree of life is the love of God which binds together in a great circle, the hearts of His children who gather under its branches.
This panel was sculpted by the artist from his well-known painting, “The Tree of Life,” that hung in the Museum of Church History and Art in Salt Lake City for 30 years.
“And it came to pass that I did go forth and partake of the fruit thereof; and I beheld that it was most sweet, above all that I ever before tasted. Yea, and I beheld that the fruit thereof was white, to exceed all the whiteness that I had ever seen…. And as I partook of the fruit thereof it filled my soul with exceedingly great joy…” ~1 Nephi 8
