Sacred Replicas Exhibit

For several years I have wanted to put my Biblical replicas on display at either BYU in Provo, or at the Church History Library in Salt Lake City. Well, I am excited to say that one of those dreams have finally come true! For about a month (I don't know how long they will let me keep the items on display), you can see my replicas at the BYU Joseph Smith Building (JSB). The exhibit is located on the first floor of the main lobby area. If you happen to be in Provo, check it out!

Modern and ancient Jewish items: incense, mezuzahs, and tefillin (phylacteries)
Ancient writing methods: cuneiform, papyrus, wax tablets, and hypocephalus
Holy Week replicas: linen strips, an oil lamp, crown of thorns, and crucified heel bone and nail
Lego twisting machine that I used to spin the thread to make the clothing of the High Priest
Cross section of Solomon's Temple
The full display case at the BYU Joseph Smith Building in Provo, Utah


  1. Hello my Name is Stefanie Mahler I am a teacher of Religious education in Germany. I admire especially the replica of Solomons temple and the tabernacle. may I ask you if you share the 3D model itself? I would like to show them my students using augmented reality.
    Hope to hear from you soon.

    1. Stefanie, I'm glad the videos have been helpful! Sadly, I can't share them as they are far too valuable to just share around. I do hope to eventually have something that will help people "experience" them better, but not now. I am working on some options which may work, but it will be some time. Sorry.

  2. No reason to say sorry. You have all my respect and admiration for your work. Thank you for answering me so fast. Thank you even for already having thought about a way of sharing them one day. I'm looking forward to :-). (And I'm sorry my English is very bad.)

    1. Stefanie, your English is great! And thanks for understanding!
