Osmonds Find Home In Wax
San Francisco Chronicle 13Jul00 P2
By Jesse Hamlin: Chronicle Staff Writer

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA -- Donny Osmond is now appearing in a long-term engagement at Fisherman's Wharf. He and many other entertainers join historic figures at the new building housing the Wax Museum, where you can see statues of Donny along with Gandhi, Jesus, Muhammad Ali and many other interesting or important people.

The Donny Osmond statue is getting praise from visitors and from the museum staff. Created by the new resident sculptor Kahn Gasimov, the Osmond figure is exceptionally realistic. "He just comes alive, from a distance and up close. It really is lifelike," says museum president Ron Fong. Gasimov is at work on a statue of Marie Osmond, so that the pair soon will appear in an ongoing showing that will last longer than their television variety program. The statues can be seen at 145 Jefferson St., San Francisco.
