This sculpture took Second Place in the 2019 Book of Mormon Central Art Contest.

Abish and the Queen is taken from Alma 19 in the Book of Mormon. Abish is one of the three named females in the Book of Mormon who is also not found in the bible. She was a Lamanite. Abish was true to the Lord and valiant in her testimony of him. This is the one instance in the scriptures of a woman raising another woman [the Lamanite Queen, the wife of Lamoni].
