The statue of Christ the Protector, as the new Brazilian master is called, currently has a head and hands outstretched, as does his brother in Rio. Even with the pedestal, the temple is 43 meters long, five meters longer than Christ the Savior.
A few years ago, local politician Adroaldo Conzatti came up with the idea of building a colossal statue, but in March he succumbed to covid-19. The project was launched in 2019 and is scheduled to be completed by the end of this year. The costs were estimated at $ 350,000 (more than 7.6 million crowns), but according to the Friends of Christ, the construction is funded by donations from individuals and private companies.
The tallest statue of Christ is located on the Indonesian island of Sulawesi.
The goal of the project is not only to build a statue of Christ taller than the Rio statue, but to be an attraction that attracts believers and other visitors to Incantado. At a height of 40 meters, somewhere in the chest area, there will also be a watch, to which tourists will be escorted by an elevator inside the statue.
Sulawesi is the front runner
The BBC server stated that it would be the third tallest statue of Jesus on the planet. The first place is occupied by Jess Puntu Burak on the Indonesian island of Sulawesi, which has a height of more than 52.55 meters. Slightly smaller than the statue of Christ the King in Poland, which is 52.5 meters high.
Statue of Christ the King looks down on residents of Schwebbodzen, Poland.
However, in the world of records, these crumbs remain. For example, the Statue of Liberty in New York measures 93 meters. The Indian Unity Statue, which is currently the tallest in the world, is 182 meters.
