The town of Swiebodzin in Poland is a fairly unremarkable place. With just 22,000 inhabitants it’s only claim to fame, at least until last weekend, was being a crossroads between two of Poland’s major motorways, better known for people passing through than for anything in the town itself.
But as of Sunday the town has an unusual claim to fame. It now hosts the world’s largest statue of Jesus.
When an 87 year-old lady Winifred Gregory died last year she left her parish church a substantial sum of money. After much deliberation Father David Buckley and his Uckfield congregation decided to commission a new, modern statue to hang on the church's tower. The winner was a seven foot bronze statue, sculpted by Marcus Cornish, which shows Jesus in modern attire. "Jesus in Jeans", as the statue has quickly become known, not only depicts Christ in Jeans and a T-shirt, but also shows him with short hair and a neatly trimmed beard.
