Potter's Wax Museum- Pope Gregory I

This photo from the Potter's Wax Museum in St. Augustine Florida, shows Pope Gregory I sitting in what must be the Vatican. The Pope was born into a wealthy family, and was educated as a lawyer. However, the Catholic religion was his passion, and he soon turned his focus to that endeavour. He became Pope in 590, and made Christianizing the Pagan Anglo-Saxons a top priority.

A close up of the wax figure, it looks so sad and contemplative. Potter's Wax Museum used to primarily feature historic figures, but has added many entertainment icons to the figure line up.
