Attack of the 170-foot Jesus

The Polish just erected the world's tallest Jesus statue. At 170 feet, it is, incidentally, dwarfed by god knows how many massive Buddha statues (the Leshan Buddha, for example, is 233 feet tall--and more than 1,000 years old).

Not that it's a contest or anything. (Mohammad, of course, is not to be portrayed.)

Anyhow, I hope, quite sincerely, that it'll fare better than the 60 foot Jesus in Ohio that was struck by lightning and burnt to the ground.

I'm curious. What was the previously largest statue of Jesus?

My guess would be the Rio de Janeiro "Christ the Redeemer", standing 130 feet tall, which makes it the the 2nd largest art deco statue in the world.

Anyone know of a bigger Jesus than that one?
