11x14" oil on wood, named after the verses in the book of mormon 1 nephi 8: 35-38, vintage gold frame lightly varnished, wired and ready to hang.
lehi's dream, the tree of life and the fruit have been portrayed many different ways. artist friend caitlin connolly (listen to caitlin's ted talk here) invited artists to look at the dream in a way...to consider "all the feeling of a tender parent." the fiddle leaf fig is a simple symbol of the tree of life, and the deer represents our ancestors & loved ones always watching over us...sometimes standing guard and protecting our little ones. because of the eternal gift of agency, they may choose paths we've not chosen...but these are important parts of their journey. just like lehi and sariah, we will worry and feel a spectrum of feelings only a tender parent can feel. but these children were our heavenly parent's children first, and i know they will also be watching over them with all the tender feelings too.
