About this Art:

Ephraim K. Hanks arrived in the camp of the Martin Company in the winter of 1856 on the banks of the Sweetwater River. He had been inspired by the promptings of the Spirit to slay a buffalo that he did not need and first wondered why he should kill the buffalo, but later that day he came upon the Martin camp, destitute of food and then he knew why. It was the buffalo meat that saved them from starvation. I include the horses as the angels of mercy, for without them, no rescue would've been possible.
