“Christ the King,” a 118-foot-tall, white-plaster-and-fiberglass statue with a golden crown, was completed on Nov. 6 in Swiebodzin, Poland (about 50 miles east of the German border).

The world’s tallest statue of Jesus (six meters taller than “Christ the Redeemer” in Rio de Janeiro), it stands atop an artificial 16-meter-high mound of rubble on the outskirts of town. The statue was designed and built by local artists and craftspeople and funded by private donations.
