Roy's Postcards: 1981/08/09
LOS ANGELES TEMPLE VISITORS CENTER
JESUS CHRIST, CREATOR OF ALL THINGS
Through the main entrance is seen a full size replica in Carrara marble of Bertel Thorvaldsen's magnificent statue, Christus, surrounded by a massive painting of the universe.

Sorry. I could find out what's on the back of this postcard but it would mean going through 1500 other poscards.
That painting is really awesome, BTW (the weird colors are due to a scanning glitch). It would be better if the Earth had some clouds, though.
This is also one of the few times you'll see a copy of a public-domain sculpture put on display in its own right. I didn't even know it was a copy until just now.
