State Fair Exhibit Has “Live” Mannequins

The Church display at the annual Utah State Fair in Salt Lake City this year attracted much attention with its “talking” mannequins. The mannequins are in a series of dioramas on the Book of Mormon and are the result of a new audio-visual technique that gives the figures the appearance of actually speaking. In addition, the exhibit includes many artifacts from South, Central, and North America, and a short film, “Ancient America Speaks,” which tells of archaeological findings. Seen below is one of the diorama displays.
