LDS TOURS  AND THE ARTIST JOHN ZAMUDIO
 
Combined both knowledge and skills to create a painting that doubtlessly will be a referent in the minds and hearts of all those who believe in the Lord’s visit to the Americas or the promised land.
The painting contains authentic history, symbolism, and a fascinating realism. The place is called Edzná which name even when is not totally clear yet, could mean set home or the home of the itzáes.
 
Twelve men surrounds the lord one of them, a scribe has brought his children and wife to hear the lord while he writes his the words that comes out of his mouth. The temple had many changes in the first century AD time on which the Maya added 12 houses rooms to the building and the crowned their work with the temple.
 
In the end the ceiba, uaca-xan or tree or tree of life illustrates the lords teachings. The yellow flowers represent the Tajonal flower, from which the non-stinger bee called Meli- pona or Zunab cab (Real Lady) makes it's honey.
 
According to their records, the Jaredite nation brought bees to this continent. What better bee to bring than a non-stinger bee. These bees, by the way, originated from Africa.
 
The men are wearing on their shoulders a protection used by the ancient hunters, which would protect them from stray arrows when in the act of hunting. The main reason these were depicted in the painting was so the viewer might recognize them as what they simply are, hunters, listening the the Savior's words.
