Mormon studies, Christ, artwork
When I was growing up, I was taught that we should not have pictures and statues of Christ on our homes or meetinghouses. Nothing was to come between us and the individual image each of us had of the Lord we worshipped. Now members of the LDS Church are expressing a need for a good image of the Savior that they can reflect upon. For artists, that shift becomes a major challenge as they work to create the desired imaged.
