Now when our hearts were depressed, and we were about to turn back, behold, the Lord comforted us, and said... bear with patience thine afflictions, and I will give unto you success.
I draw this prophet character often. He symbolizes every prophet from Job to Abinadai to Joseph Smith. The long beard represents both wisdom endurance.
This is an original handmade etching. It was created at the Lower East Side Printshop. The plate was created by etching the lines into a copper plate. The plate was then soaked in an acid bath and inked by hand. The entire plate was then painted in reverse with a q-tip, fingerprints, and tarlatan. Because of the extensive unique painting over the whole plate, this is a 'monoprint' and no two are the same.
