King of Kings Wax Museum- The Annunciation

The Angel Gabriel came unto her and said, "Fear not Mary, Thou has found favor with God. Thou shalt bring forth a son, and call his name Jesus."

This image is from the King of Kings Wax Museum at Sunken Gardens in St. Petersburg Florida. The museum opened around 1968 and closed in the 1990's. Fortunately, the figures were saved, restored, and moved to the Museum of Religious Arts in Logan Iowa.
