The Angel Moroni Statue painting was created using watercolor to depict the gold statue that tops most of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints temples. The church's angel Moroni statues have come to symbolize the restoration of the gospel to members of the church.
This painting is a depiction of the Salt Lake Temple statue, created by prominent American artist Cyrus E. Dallin. The Salt Lake temple was dedicated in 1893 and was the first temple topped with the angel formally identified as Moroni. Dallin's statue depicts a dignified, neoclassical angel in robe and cap, standing upright with a trumpet in hand. The statue is just over 12 feet tall and was hammered out of copper and covered with 22-karat gold leaf.
The hidden image in this piece consists of three spires subtly placed within the shadows on the stone ball. These spires represent the spires found on the Salt Lake temple.
