On the walls of the temple found at the top are four sculpted panels ("friezes") each representing a significant scene. The West Frieze depicts the great leaders and prophets of the Old Testament with Adam in the Garden of Eden as the central figure. The South Frieze depicts characters and events of the New Testament with Jesus Christ being the central figure. The East panel portrays the latter-day dispensation with Joseph Smith in the central, a young boy who was perplexed by the religious confusion that existed in his time. Several characters of the Book of Mormon, which Joseph Smith translated from ancient text, represent the North panel.
