(Newser) – The Polish town of Sweibodzin has completed what its mayor calls the world's biggest statue of Jesus. The colossal white figure is 108 feet high—that's one meter for each of the 33 years he lived, says the priest who conceived the project. That's also smaller than the 125-foot Jesus statue in Rio, but members of the construction team tell the AP that if you count the mound it's on as well as well as the crown, it's—ta da—167 feet. No word yet from the folks in Rio.
