The world’s largest Marian statue has been unveiled in Oruro, Bolivia.
The 149-foot statue, which was unveiled at a ceremony attended by Bolivian Presiden Evo Morales, is even taller than the famous Christ the Redeemer statue that overlooks Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Dedicated to Our Lady of Socavon, the patroness of miners, statue is located on top of a 12,000-foot mountain south of La Paz.
