Dear Little Rachel,

"THE SPACE MURAL - A COSMIC VIEW" (vertical detail)
by Robert T. McCall
In this detail, the Lunar Module stands on the Moon and an astronaut explores a nearby region of the lunar surface. Orbiting above is the Apollo command and service module with the third member of the crew inside. Above and behind the space man is the planet Earth - beautiful and inviting - now more than ever, home and mother to all mankind.

Leonard's comments:

Glorious. The secular equivalent of the mural in an LDS temple's visitor center.

I guess the second crew member is painting the mural?
