The World's Biggest Jesus Gets His Head

The world's largest Jesus statue now towers over Swiebodzin, Poland, measuring 170 feet 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 52 meter Jesus is made of plater and fiberglass. 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 fulfill Jesus' will, and today I give thanks to him for allowing me to fulfill 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 Savior. [CNN via BoingBoing]
