Wonderful artwork

KnoWhy #144 reminded me of the wonderful artwork by Walter Rane. There’s an online exhibit here:

I like Rane’s style overall, but more importantly, Rane’s work helps to facilitate a consensus about Book of Mormon geography because it is not so specifically set in Mesoamerica as most of the other artwork on lds.org. Rane’s work will have enduring relevance and usefulness as a result.

His painting of Enos is one of my favorites, along with Ether’s Cavity and King Benjamin’s address (although that one still has an anachronistic pagan Mayan temple in the background, it is fairly well obscured).
