The Angel Moroni

Cyrus E. Dallin, a noted Utah born sculptor, created the gold leafed statue of the Angel Moroni for the center east tower of the Salt Lake Temple for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints at the invitation of President Wilford Woodruff. The artist said of that experience: “I considered that my ‘Angel Moroni’ brought me nearer to God than anything I ever did. It seemed to me that I came to know what it means to commune with angels from heaven…. We can only create in life what we are and what we think.”
