Swiebodzin. Statue of Christ, the King of Universe.

The figure in shape refers to the famous sculpture in Rio de Janeiro.

 

However, while the figure in Rio has a height of 30 meters, this in Swiebodzin has 36 meters.

The total weight of the pedestal in Swiebodzin is 470 tonnes, of which only a gold-plated crown has 500 kg.

The cost of construction was paid for with private donations, and amounted to approximately 2,000,000 $.

 

The statue is a metal construction on which placed a layer of concrete.
According to experts, due to a disastrous quality of construction, will not survive more than 20 years.

 

Benefited not only from the services of local companies but also from the work of prisoners (one of them took advantage of the opportunity and he escaped).

The originator and organizer of the construction of the monument, the local priest Sylwester Zawadzki said in 2010:

 

"Jesus had an idea, I just realized it. Now I am very happy. This is one of the most important events in my life."

 

At the same time - that is in 2010 - the local building inspector said:
"I remember the July 22, 2008, newspapers reported then about plans of the priest. He spread a vision of the figure 33 meters high.

I clutched my head in disbelief !

In the proposal to the governor he reported the construction of a small garden architecture.

I initiated control. I obliged the priest to carry out expertise of foundation bearing capacity. And the cat’s out of the bag..."

 

After the death of father Zawadzki in 2014, according to his last wish - cut of his heart and buried it under the monument.

 

To this day, the prosecution check or there was not break the law, because according to the rules, body can be bury only in place special designated for this and is not allow to dismember the body.
