The Palmyra New York Temple is one of a series of detailed pencil drawings and paintings created by 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.
To honor the significance of the First Vision, the artist has included the First Vision within this drawing. The young Joseph Smith is located in the lower left corner of the image with the vision of the Father and the Son in the upper right corner. The figures depicted in this drawing are patterned specifically after the First Vision that is portrayed beautifully in stained glass within the Palmyra Temple.
