A little History on Beehives
In 1881 the Deseret News described the use of the beehive art symbol by Latter-day Saints this way: "The hive and honey bees form our communal coat of arms…. It is a significant representation of the industry, harmony, order and frugality of the people, and of the sweet results of their toil, union and intelligent cooperation." It’s history among the Latter-day Saints likely finds its source in the Book of Mormon, where the Jaredites carried "with them Deseret, which, by interpretation, is a honey bee" (Ether 2:3)
Other cultures also celebrate the Bee and the Beehive. Jewish tradition says that “Bees have a sting within them, yet their product is sweet. We are hoping that God’s attribute of judgement will be tempered by His attribute of mercy, producing a sweeter result.” And Saint John Chrysostom wrote that ";the bee is more honored than other animals, not because it labors, but because it labors for other";. Thoughts to ponder as we enjoy these beautiful representations.
The beehive adorns many church buildings - books & Latter-day Saint art. Here are a few of note:
The Beehive House in Salt Lake City - The Beehive News Paper - Utah Beehive State - Beehive on the podium in the conference center - BYU logo is a beehive - Beehive Clothing at church distribution - Beehives Girls Youth Program
OUR COMMITMENT TO BE IN HARMONY WITH THE REVEALED NAME OF THE CHURCH:
On August 16th, 2018 President Russell M. Nelson of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints released the following statement regarding the name of the Church.
“The Lord has impressed upon my mind the importance of the name He has revealed for His Church, even The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We have work before us to bring ourselves in harmony with His will. “
The Church has since released guidelines stating the use of Mormon or LDS as a substitute for the name of the the church should be avoided, but such use in proper names such as - The Book of Mormon or when used as an adjective in historical expressions such as - The Mormon Trail - Mormon Battalion, should be considered as the correct use.
The Nauvoo Gallery has been working to put our website and our gallery store in Nauvoo, Illinois in harmony with this important revelation. It’s been customary for websites like ours to use terms like LDS Art, LDS Temple Art, LDS pictures or Mormon Art when describing our products for Google and other search engines. Our intention has been to help people find what has been termed as LDS products & LDS Gifts. It took many many months to build and add products to this website using those relevant and popular search terms - please bear with us as it may take a few months still to find each instance where we can better be in harmony with President Nelson’s message. Thank you for your patience and your kindness during this process
