The purpose of this work was to plan and execute a mural for the Latter Day Saint Temple at St. George, Utah, depicting the ground breaking ceremony for the building of the Temple. The picturization of the event should be historically true, so far as possible, without sacrificing quality of design. Value, pattern, color, and idea should conform to the character and design of the building, and to the ceremonies performed therein.
