The Louisville Kentucky 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.
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 the Savior’s image kneeling in prayer across the surface of the temple and landscape in the right half of the drawing. The Savior’s face, clasped hands, and upper body are a part of the temple and distant trees with the Savior’s kneeling lower body found in the foreground grass and landscaping.
