Temple Artist

Today Emily Dykes Pugmire came to the temple with her husband.  She helped Joseph Brickey with the murals in the Copenhagen Temple. They are beautiful and he was instructed to take his inspiration from Carl Block, which he did.  It was so interesting to hear about some of the symbolism that was painted in.
   The baptistry, in our opinion is the loveliest in the church.  One of the 30 foot murals that surrounds it shows John the Baptist beckoning people to follow him and there is a crowd of people,all of whom were real people in Danish and Swedish history or copies of  people in famous Scandinavian art.  Among the people are Carl Bloc, CCA Christensen, Hans Christian Andersen, etc.
