Rough Stone: Joseph Smith


Most religious leaders, while brilliant and inspired, are also complicated and imperfect.  Sometimes in our reverence for their genius we can whitewash their humanness.  This portrait of the Mormon Prophet Joseph Smith symbolically represents the various aspects of his character, a self-described “rough stone”—the varied warm and cool colors, painted thick and coarse, all coming together into a cohesive whole. God can, and does, reveal his perfect grace through imperfect people, past and present.    

“I am like a huge, rough stone” – Joseph Smith
