In this depiction, the prophet Lehi stands before the tree of life, inviting and exhorting his posterity to come and partake of the fruit that was “most sweet” and exceedingly white. Of his experience, Lehi wrote, “And as I partook of the fruit thereof it filled my soul with exceedingly great joy; wherefore, I began to be desirous that my family should partake of it also; for I knew that it was desirable above all other fruit” (1 Ne. 8:12).
