Holt, Nathan. "Nephi's Sorrow", 2019.


This piece was a Youth Entry in the 2019 Book of Mormon Central Art Contest and received an Honorable Mention.

"A depiction of the events described in Helaman 7. Nephi, kneeling on his tower near the center of the painting, prays to Heavenly Father in sorrow for the wickedness of his people. The despair he feels for his formerly righteous brethren reveals the love he has for them; a love we should all try to emulate."
