“The Offering” depicts a mother holding out the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge and her baby reaching for the fruit, symbolic of women offering the gift of mortality to the spirits waiting in Heaven and the excitement and gratitude felt by those spirits. This painting attempts to depict the beauty of a woman willing to have a child, allowing this child an opportunity to progress. 


In some instances, receiving a mortal body is all that is needed; and even though, for these babies, their time with us is short, their eternity and ours is forever changed because of their mother’s sacrificial offering.
