A small family grasps a rod as the figure at the head points to the tree. Bolarinwa was inspired by the Book of Mormon prophet Lehi. When Lehi tasted the white fruit that grew on the tree that represented God’s love, he wanted his family to also eat that fruit. Bolarinwa writes, "Heavenly Father through His prophets ‘inviteth them all to come unto him and partake of his goodness’ (2 Nephi 26:33)."
