FINDLAY, OH (Toledo News Now) -
For the 14th
year, Roger Powell and dozens of volunteers used over 300 tons of sand,
hundreds of man hours, and a little artistic creativity to help spread the
message of Easter in a non-traditional way.

This year's sculpture will
be on display for two weeks following Easter Sunday.
