Product Description

The Rexburg Idaho Temple 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 researches its history, construction, and beautiful surroundings. He then returns to his studio to paint the temple by referring to his notes, sketches, and photographs.

Just two years after Brigham Young University Idaho opened in Rexburg, church leaders announced that a temple was soon to follow. The brilliant white exterior uses a quartz rock finish from Washington state. Interior wood trim was imported from Africa and stone and tile from Israel. Perched on a hill above the university campus the temple is a landmark that can be seen from vast distances. President Howard W. Hunter has counseled us, saying, Let us truly be a temple-attending and temple-loving people. We should hasten to the temple as frequently, yet prudently, as our personal circumstances allow. . . . As we attend the temple, we learn more richly and deeply the purpose of life and the significance of the atoning sacrifice of the Lord Jesus Christ (Ensign, February 1995, p. 5). In the temple, members are taught more about the gospel of Jesus Christ and the purpose of life. To remind one of the importance of Christ's atonement in temple work, Chad has rendered a full length image of the Savior among the foliage to the left of the temple.

This comes in a 11x14 print.
