Heavenly Visions

Heavenly Visions: Shaker Gift Drawings and Gift Songs, The Drawing Center and UCLA Hammer Museum. This is a sampling of gift (gifts from god) drawings made by Shaker women in the 1850s. They were sent visions and recorded their spiritual contact in these drawings. Most of them are from the 1850's and Pennsylvania. These are terrible scans, you must check out the book for yourself!
