The world’s largest Jesus statue now towers over Swiebodzin, Poland, measuring 52m tall from his feet to the tip of his crown. Watch his head get attached by a 700-ton crane; it’s very spiritual and a little bit goofy.
The 52m Jesus is made of plater and fibreglass. Upon its completion, Father Zawadzki told the Warsaw Business Journal, “This is the culmination of my life’s work as a priest. I felt inspired to fulfil Jesus’ will, and today I give thanks to him for allowing me to fulfil his will.”
Meanwhile, Radio Poland quoted the town’s mayor as saying Radio Poland quoted Dariusz Bekisz as saying, “More people will visit Swiebodzin and leave their money.” But hey, everyone’s allowed to have their own personal relationship with the Saviour. [CNN via
