Ohio’s only life-size wax museum, BibleWalk, is located in the city of Mansfield. A tribute to Christianity, the museum has more than 300 figures displayed in 70 religious scenes that tell the stories of the Bible and the life of Jesus. But if you look closely, you’ll notice that some of the Biblical characters bear a striking resemblance to Hollywood stars and other famous people. King Solomon looks like John Travolta, while the lady standing nearby has the face of Elizabeth Taylor. In one corner, standing solemnly in an all-white gown is a young-looking Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh. In another scene, the figure of Jesus Christ with flowing hair and full beard is unmistakably Tom Cruise.
