Christ the King (‘Monument of Christ the King’) is a statue of Jesus Christ in Świebodzin, western Poland, completed on 6 November 2010. The figure is 33 metres (108 ft) tall, the crown is 3 metres (9.8 ft) tall, and along with its mound, it reaches 52.5 metres (172 ft) overall.
It took five years in total to construct and cost around $1.5 million to build, which was collected from donations of the 21,000 residents of the town. The project was conceived and led by Sylwester Zawadzki, a retired Polish priest. It is the tallest statue of Jesus in the world.
It weighs 440 tons. The head alone is 4.5 metres (15 ft) tall and weighs 15 tons. Each hand is 6 metres (20 ft) in length and the distance between the ends of the fingers is 24 metres (79 ft). It is composed of concrete and fibreglass.
It is 3 metres (9.8 ft) taller than the better known statue of Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro, standing at 30.1 metres (99 ft) tall without its pedestal.
