Background Artwork

I made the background artwork for this blog to accommodate even very high resolution screens. Because of this some of you may not be able to see the whole image. Here it is:


For those interested, here is a breakdown of the characters from left to right:

A demon:

This might be the devil--not sure. I haven't written the story yet so he got in the picture because demons look cool.

A servant of Laban

Nephi and his brothers get chased by servants of Laban. They will probably be fire salamanders, but as with everything, this could change. Unless otherwise noted all animals are native to Israel (according to Wikipedia and other web sources)

The striped hyena

Laman. Big and tough.

The center caracal (type of large cat)

Probably one of Nephi's sisters.

The green "bull" frog

The prophet Jeremiah of course!!

The golden jackal

Maybe Isaiah? Definitely a prophet who has been through some hard times.

The camel

A camel. The extra smart variety. I was thinking of my own dog, Doby, who is big and dumb, but lovable. Then I thought it would be fun to have a giant dachsund, so the camels ended up stubby-legged and not so smart. Comedy relief.

Top left background image

Lehi carrying Sariah to a honeymoon getaway at night. They are small so you may have to look for them.

Top right background image

Lehi and Sariah in Egypt, falling in love.  The scriptures state that Lehi dwelt at Jerusalem "all his days" but how did he learn Egyptian if that were true? I think he traveled some. Scholars agree.
