The Trumpet Stone
This is my new blog! The purpose of this blog is to talk about temple architecture in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I have been in 28 temples so far so I know a lot about them and architecture is one of my interests. I hope to review different temples and talk about different details I notice.
I chose the name The Trumpet Stone based on a symbol on several temples. The Nauvoo and Salt Lake temples both have what can be considered trumpet stones. In Nauvoo they are a part of the sunstones above the actual sun. On the Salt Lake Temple they are on the east central tower although in this case they are cloudstones with rays of light. The trumpets were originally planned but never added. In Nauvoo hands holding trumpets are present.
