The Decker family was one of the first families to travel through the Hole in the Rock. This painting depicts the day of “descent.” With all the hustle and bustle of getting animals and supplies ready for the 45-degree mile long slope, known as the Hole in the Rock, Mrs. Decker placed her little baby in one of the wagons for safe keeping. It was not until her husband had started their wagons down the steep incline that she remembered her child. In a panic, she yelled for the caravan to stop, but there was no way to stop a wagons descent after it had started. The pass would have been loud as men and livestock loudly communicated with each other, through the echoing walls of rock and sand. No one could hold and protect the child as potential boxes and bags pitched with the bumpy and steep terrain. Mrs. Decker and her husband reached the bottom, the first thing they did was rush to their child. They found the child unharmed and fast asleep, unaware of the possible danger it had just passed through. “Answered Prayers,” depicts the moment Mr. and Mrs. Decker were reunited with their little one, and is a reminder that prayers are heard.
