Looking for a specific LDS painting of Christ as Baby with Tribal Cloth

I received and inquiry from a lady who is looking for a specific painting. This painting was in the Ensign or New Era a few years back however, the online versions of the church magazines don’t show the original artwork. if anyone knows where this painting is please contact me at this art can probably be found in a December or November edition of one of the Church magazines. Below is a letter and description of the painting.

Thanks for your help.

Dear Brother Bowen,

Since you are involved in LDS Art, I thought you might know of a painting I saw – I could swear it was a church magazine-   of the infant Jesus in swaddling clothes, but the swaddling clothes (as explained in the caption) were the striped pattern of cloth symbolizing the tribe of His lineage.  It was a beautiful painting!  But I’ve written the Church magazines and without more information, they could not help.  Any ideas where I might turn to find this painting? Thanks so much!
I was glad to find your website – I have a very large print of the original prophets in the temple – it’s very outdated now, tho!  But still love the concept of them all together : )
