Favorite Sculptures of Christ

These very large scultpures of Christ have shaped my thoughts in any number of ways, and I'm glad that the people responsible had the time, energy and money to create these gigantic monuments...

Christ Redeemer
top of Corcovado Hill, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Cristo del Otero, in Palencia, Spain, by VĂ­ctorio Macho. It's the second largest Christ statue in the world, after the Corcovado, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Cristo Rey (Christ the King) along I-10 at Sunland Park, New Mexico.
This statue was made by the sculptor Urbici Soler, completed 1939.
