This beautiful sculpture is taken from the ancient hieroglyph stone, Stela 5, located in Izapa, Central America. The Stela 5 is thought to be a representation of Lehi's vision of The Tree of Life. This replica is painstaking sculpted from the most current interpretation found in current books that detail the ancient ruins found in Central America from BYU author and Professor, Joseph Allen. This sculpture is a beautiful art piece for the home that depicts LDS themes found in the Book of Mormon.
Every effort has been made to have this 1st edition replica look exactly as it would have when Joseph first printed them. The cover is made of genuine vegatable tanned sheepskin. The text is in its original style and placement, each line exactly as it was in the original. The pages have text block edges sprinkled with blue dye. Each book was finished by hand by a master book binder.
This is as close as you can get without buying the real thing. The pages were written in paragraph form as verses were not created until a later date.
