Ac­tor plans world’s tallest statue of Je­sus

The Timaru Herald - - WORLD -

Con­struc­tion of the world’s tallest statue of Je­sus Christ is due to start soon in Mex­ico. Christ of Peace will stand 77m, would tower over Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro and is more than twice the size of the tallest statue of Je­sus, the 36m Christ the King in Swiebodzin, Poland. The project is be­ing pro­moted by ac­tor Ed­uardo Verastegui, who started as a model and made his name in soap op­eras. The statue will de­pict Christ with out­stretched arms as if of­fer­ing an em­brace.
