About the piece
The innocence, purity and hope of a young girl are captured in this beautiful painting by Carrie Graber. As she stands before a mirror, the child sees herself dressed in her mother's wedding veil and dreams of the day when she, too, will be a bride. For a bouquet, she holds a delicate stem of violet flowers which symbolize her modesty and virtue. Behind her, the resplendent rays of the sun capture the Nauvoo Temple in golden illumination, a vivid reminder that she will someday be married there, while the mirror's reflection signifies her path to eternal marriage.
This print would make a lovely addition to any home grounded in the principals of Eternal Marriage and chastity. It would also make a fitting gift for a young woman at her baptism or entrance into Young Woman's, or to celebrate the birth of a new daughter.
