    This is not the first time Johan Benthin was mentioned in general conference, although it might be the first time his art was featured. Brother Benthin was mentioned in President Packer's April 1995 talk as the man President Kimball told "I want you to tell every prelate in Denmark they do not hold the keys, I hold the keys", when President Kimball visited the chapel where Thorvaldesen's Christus and 12 aposltes statues are housed.

    Brother Benthin traveled much. He lived for many years in Germany, which is probably how he became firends with President Uchtdorf. He later moved to India, and in 2000 was serving as the president of the Banglore District. He died in 2006.
