The artist gave this oil painting to the Relief Society in 1947 as her donation to the building fund for the Relief Society Building (see story on page 54). This painting shows the moments after Christ had blessed the little children, when angels "encircled those little ones about ... with fire; and the angels did minister unto them" (3 Ne. 17:24).
