The story of a military leader rising, in the name of God, to defend his people and land against oppressive tyranny sounds like a lesson that could be taught in an American History class. The comparisons between Captain Moroni and George Washington are many. The parallel of their love of and desire to protect freedom and liberty in the name of God were not lost on Liz Lemon Swindle while creating the painting.
“In researching the painting In God We Trust(George Washington praying at Vallery Forge)I was stuck by the extent to which General Washington found solace and strength in scriptures through out the Revolutionary war, and especially during the trials of the encampment at Valley Forge. As I got deeper into Voice of WarningI couldn’t help but get inspired by in the similarities between the two.”
This is one of the more vibrant paintings of Captain Moroni one will find - you can’t help but get lost in the landscape of the land he loved so much and he fought to defend. But even more significant is the sense of power and determination that emanates from Moroni. It is obvious that this is not merely a soldier, but a determined leader with a righteous cause.
