Mormon Religious Art

The other day while touring local art galleries we came upon this artist Roland Lee who specializes in Mormon historical art. I love how he captures the essence of that time.

Many Mormon pioneers came across the plains in covered wagons
Later converts from England came to Utah with handcarts they pulled
Winter came early for some handcart companies and difficulties
Many pioneers died before reaching the Utah territory and Zion
Many gave their lives helping younger and weaker ones cross frozen rivers
Early pioneer artifacts
Joseph Smith as a boy of fourteen prayed to know which church to join
and received a heavenly vision. Now there are 15 million Mormons worldwide.

The art here really showed the early struggles of the church.
