Title Indian Stories
Description Visitors were awed by the workmanship of previous craftsmen, their work now highlighted by new paint, carpets, chandeliers, and drapery. There were many complimentary remarks concerning the color choice and variety of textures used in the new carpeting, drapes, and wall coverings. Muted tones were selected to enhance the serene atmosphere of the temple. An interesting observation was the decorations on the woodwork throughout the temple. handiwork of various craftsmen. Each man was assigned to finish a room in his own particular style. It is also interesting to note that the pictures on the walls of the Creation Room, painted by CCA. Christensen, are painted directly on the walls. Over the years the plaster has pulled away from the walls in some areas. In order to preserve this fine art, the workmen carefully glued the plaster back onto the walls by the use of hypodermic needles. In the Font Room and the World Room the art work was painted on canvas and needed only to be cleaned. Another interest was the new carpeting in the Celestial Room. A remnant of the original carpeting, laid in the room a century ago, was found in a Manti residence. The decision was made to produce an authentic reproduction and the remnant was sent to a mill in England, one of the few in the world with a loom capable of producing the required 27 colors and shades. Many women were elated as they recognized their handwork on one of the thirty chairs and an altar In the Sealing Room. Sixty-four Manti and Ephraim women were occupied for a full year completing the elegant needlepoint. One of the rooms featured a valuable hand-woven Persian carpet, donated to the church several years ago by Ilr. and 1'rs. Milton Barlow of Chevy Chase, Maryland. This lovely Persian carpet, known as an Isphahan, has a "mree of Life" design and is a lovely addition to the temple, even though it was made early in this century and not during the 1870s and lSBOs when the tenple was built. .114
