The Bern Switzerland 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 series of temple prints to support his two-year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Frankfurt, Germany.
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. Reminding us of these truths, Chad has sketched an image of the Savior, to the left of the temple. Because of the traditional neutrality of Switzerland, the artist has hidden among the clouds a dove with an olive branch.
