Jesus, that's a big statue


The world's tallest Jesus statue is now presiding over Swiebodzin, Poland. It is 170 feet (52 meters) tall from base of the mound to tip of the crown. The 33 meter body represents Christ's lifetime of 33 years. Hopefully, this Jesus will not suffer the same fiery fate as Cincinnati's six-story tall Touchdown Jesus a few months ago. From CNN:

"This is the culmination of my life's work as a priest. I felt inspired to fulfill Jesus' will, and today I give thanks to him for allowing me to fulfill his will," Father Zawadzki said after the head was attached by a 700-ton crane, according to a report from the Warsaw Business Journal.

The height of the plaster and fiberglass Polish statue surpasses the 40.4-meter (133-foot) Cristo de la Concordia in Cochabamba, Bolivia, and the 39.6-meter (130-foot) Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, according to news reports.
