Giant Jesus statue’s significant measurements

By now, the story of the giant Jesus statue that towers over the small Polish town of Swiebodzin (population 22,000) is all all over the news.

The statue is the manifestation of Rev. Sylwester Zawadzki’s lifelong dream.  The 78-year-old priest claims the statue stands 108 feet tall, or 33 meters — signifying the amount of years that Jesus lived.

However, others have given varying figures, the disparity in measurement stemming from whether or not the crown that sits upon Jesus’ head is included.

Despite the exact measurement however, the statue is immediately noticeable, and already bringing considerable attention to Swiebodzin and its residents.
