Step aside, Rio de Janeiro. A tiny village in Poland is on the verge of erecting what is being said the world's largest statue of Jesus Christ in a small town Swiebodzin, in western Poland.
Attempts were made on Friday to complete the statue — which will rise a couple yards higher than the iconic Christ the Redeemer monument in Rio.
But heavy winds prevented cranes from lifting the torso, arms and head onto the lower half of the robed white figure. The project cost 4 million zlotys ($1.45 million).
