The Provo Temple, located in beautiful Utah Valley, is one of a series of detailed pencil drawings and paintings created by the artist Chad S. Hawkins. In 1989, at the age of seventeen, Chad started this unique temple series becoming the original LDS artist to involve hidden spiritual images in his artwork. Before drawing each temple Chad visits the temple site to research its history, construction, and beautiful surroundings. He then returns to his studio to draw the temple by referring to his notes, sketches, and photographs.
In this temple picture, Chad has sketched Christ in the mountains overlooking the temple, with his outstretched arms inviting all to come unto him. The Savior's arms can be seen in the mountain ridges with the shadows forming the folds in his robe; his hands are found on both sides of the temple behind the trees. Yea, come unto Christ, and be perfected in him, and deny yourselves of all ungodliness; and if ye shall deny yourselves of all ungodliness, and love God with all your might, mind and strength, then is his grace sufficient for you, that by his grace ye may be perfect in Christ; and if by the grace of God ye are perfect in Christ, ye can in nowise deny the power of God (Moroni 10:32).
