Christ The King, Poland

From series “The Most Grandiose Statues and Monuments”
Year: 2011. Height: 33 meters.

Monuments that can be considered as sites of world significance can be found in Poland too. One of these landmarks is located in Swiebodzin, where travelers will have an opportunity to see the world's largest statue of Jesus Christ. The Christ the King or Pomnik Chrystusa Krola is located to the south-eastern part of the city. The height of the sculpture is 33 meters. Construction of the statue was initiated by one of the local priest named Sylvester Zawadzki. He made a proposal to build a unique monument in 2001. Only ten years later, the new iconic landmark appeared in Swiebodzin. The statue is made of reinforced concrete; its weight is about 440 tons.

Christ The King, Poland One of the main features of the sculpture is a gilded crown on the head of Christ. During construction, the project was repeatedly changing. One of the most difficult stages was an installation of the head. Initially, it was planned to make it of reinforced concrete like other parts of the monument, but in this case the head due to its enormous weight could cause a collapse of the structure. It was decided to make the head of the statue of durable plastic. This nuance has in no way affected the appearance of the monument, but has reduced the weight of the head threefold.
