An exhibit of wax statues, depicting some of Shiite Muslims' most beloved clerics and intended to pay tribute to this Iraqi holy city's contributions to culture, has been dipped in controversy as some Sunnis decry the figures as heretical.
Mr. al-Najafi said it is OK to have half a statue but not the full body.
"Even those dead people whose statues are displayed [would have] disapproved of this," said Ali Bashir al-Najafi, a spokesman for one of Iraq's top Shiite clerics.
