This work, perhaps unparalleled in LDS art, is a family portrait of figures that appear over and over in Friberg’s art. For Friberg, each person in his art, regardless of the lack of physical description in the Book of Mormon, was a specific individual with particular physical appearance, including costume, that clearly communicated his or her character.
