Avard Fairbanks was commissioned to create a colossal 18-foot statue to adorn the center spire of the Washington DC Temple. Other colossal 15-foot statues of his design were placed on the temples at Bellevue, Washington, South Jordan, Utah, at Mexico City, and Sao Paulo, Brazil. This 1/4-life-size statuette was cast from the working prototype.

In 1916 to Avard was requested to portray Lehi blessing his son Joseph. An heroic statue with two figures was modeled in clay, then finished in cast stone. It was then placed on the Temple grounds.
