What's Wrong with This Picture? (#2)

What's wrong with this picture? I'm not asking about color choices or body proportions, I mean something wrong in how the characters/event/setting are portrayed.


Come up with an answer, and preferably a scripture that supports it, then scroll down for mine---no cheating!


















What's wrong? See Joseph Smith-History 1:32, "The room was exceedingly light, but not so very bright as immediately around his person." The light was coming from Moroni, so there shouldn't be any shadow behind him.

What about the seeing into Moroni's bosom?

What about "while I was thus in the act of calling upon God" (JS 1:30)--wouldn't he have been kneeling? Of course if the picture refers to the subsequent visitations he would have been in bed as depicted.

Um, also, wouldn't there really have been about six other brothers and sisters in the room at the same time?

kullervo - I gave the artist the benefit of the doubt on that one---the frame is cropped, so if Joseph slept on the side of the bed closest to the wall, then the painting is okay.

And, Joseph is about 14, where in the picture he is about 18...
