About this Art:

Orson Hyde was of Jewish descent and a convert to the Mormon Church. Joseph Smith sent him and another elder to Jerusalem to dedicate the land of Palestine for the return of the Jews, as was prophesied in scripture. This was dangerous land to be in at the time, and his companion left him and went home. Orson stayed, wrote the dedicatory prayer by inspiration, then went up on the Mount of Olives and blessed the land.
