A St. Petersburg fixture is headed to Iowa. The King of Kings exhibit at Sunken Gardens, which featured wax replicas depicting the birth, life, death and resurrection of Jesus, will become the main attraction at the new Museum of Religious Arts in Logan. The 29 pieces of the exhibit had been at the tourist attraction since 1968 but had not been on display for the past two years. Paul Lovell, president of the museum's board, heard that the display might be for sale and got his museum involved. The exhibit will now become the main attraction at his museum, Lovell said. He plans to build new scenery and props for the scenes, each of which will have its own room.
