The Toronto Ontario Temple, located on the outskirts of Brampton about twenty miles west of Toronto, 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.
The Toronto Ontario Temple was dedicated in August of 1990 by Gordon B. Hinckley, and became the forty-fourth temple of the church. The spire that adorns the temple is 105 feet high with an eleven-foot statue of the Angel Moroni. Located on 13.4 acres of ground, the temple has a modern design and has an exterior finish of beautiful white cast stone. In this picture, Chad has sketched a full-length image of the Savior, Jesus Christ, in the tall tree on the right.
