®Female angels descend in a graceful curve to join Christ in ministering to the children. The central angel ministers by washing the face of a little neglected child.® Perhaps influenced by her own grandmotherly acts, Teichert interprets ministering as also bringing an abundance of food and drink . . . These emblems symbolize Christ's promise: to eat and never hunger and drink and never thirst . . . The youngsters are delighted by the offerings. Older children bring forth infants too young to come by themselves, and one child turns to help another. Their acts remind us that these children represent three generations that will be unified in righteousness and by their faith in Christ. The angels appear similar to each other and to Christ, signifying their own unity of purpose and their loving devotion to Christ and all of humanity. (Welch, John W. and Doris R. Dant. The Book of Mormon Paintings of Minerva Teichert. BYU Studies, 1997, p. 146.)
