Vernal Utah Temple Sketch
The original of this painting was selected to be on permanant display inside of the Vernal Utah Temple... Since 1907, one of the most prominent landmarks in the lovely Ashley Valley has been the historic Uintah Stake Tabernacle. In November of 1899, quarrying the rock began, and after six years of toil and hardship at a cost of $30,000, the tabernacle was completed. The first time that a prophet of the church had visited the area was on August 24, 1907, when President Joseph F. Smith dedicated the building. It was later reported in the local newspaper Vernal Express that there were thousands present, many from far distances, and that the dedicatory services were easily the greatest events in the history of the Uintah Stake of Zion. The pencil drawing at the bottom is a depiction of an actual photograph taken at the conclusion of one of the dedicatory services... The Vernal Utah Temple is the first temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to be constructed out of an already existing structure. In this piece of artwork, the artist depicts both the historical tabernacle in black and white as it appeared when it was dedicated in 1907, and the beautiful modern-day temple in full color upon its dedication in 1997. The two circles with the respective dedicatory years are located on the west end of the temple. In the clouds above the temple, the Savior appears with his arm outstretched, inviting each of us to partake in the blessings of the temple.
This comes in a 11x14 or a 16x20 print.
