Monument of Christ the King

Christ the King (Polish: Pomnik Chrystusa Króla, lit. Monument of Christ the King) is an Art Deco statue of Jesus Christ in Świebodzin, western Poland, completed on 6 November 2010. The figure is 33 metres (108 ft) tall,[1] the crown is 3 metres (9.8 ft) tall,[2] and along with its mound, it reaches 52.5 metres (172 ft)[3] overall. It took five years in total to construct and cost around $1.5 million to build, which was collected from donations of the 21,000 residents of the town.[2] The project was conceived and led by Sylwester Zawadzki, a retired Polish priest.[4] It is the tallest statue of Jesus in the world.[4]

The statue was built on a 16.5 metre embankment of stones and rubble.[3] Christ the King has a height of 33 metres, symbolising a traditional belief that Jesus’ age at his death was 33.[1] The Crown of the temple is 3.5 metres in diameter and 2 m in height, and the whole is gilded. It weighs 440 tons. The head alone is 4.5 m tall and weighs 15 tons. Each hand is 6 m in length and the distance between the ends of the fingers is 24 metres. It is composed of concrete and fibreglass.[1][3] It is 3 meters taller than the better known statue of Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro, standing at 30.1 metres (99 ft) tall without its pedestal.Wikipedia
