World's largest statue of Jesus unveiled in Poland
Catholic World News - November 22, 2010
The world’s largest statue of Jesus has been unveiled in Swiebodzin, Poland.
The 108-foot statue of “Christ the King of the Universe” was dedicated on the feast of Christ the King, with Cardinal Henryk Gulbinowicz, the retired Archbishop of Wroclaw, presiding.
The Polish statue surpasses the height of the famous Christ the Redeemer statue overlooking the city of Rio de Janeiro. The Brazilian statue is just under 100 feet high.
