The Tree of Life is imagery used in many different religions and cultures throughout the world, often symbolizing connection between heaven and earth, and every living thing. The Tree of Life is shown in vision to prophets in the Book of Mormon."And I looked and beheld a tree; and it was like unto the tree which my father had seen; and the beauty thereof was far beyond, yea, exceeding of all beauty; and the whiteness thereof did exceed the whiteness of the driven snow." Its fruit is described as "most precious and most desirable above all other fruits," which "is the greatest of all the gifts of God". This painting serves as a reminder of God's great love for us and the goal of attaining eternal life.
