FOT. SEBASTIAN RZEPIEL / AGENCJA GAZETA - Wybudowanie pomnika było dla mnie powołaniem. Chrystus objawił mi się i powiedział, żebym to zrobił. Tak się stało. Kierowałem się symboliką. Sama postać Jezusa mierzy 33 metry, dokładnie tyle, ile Chrystus miał lat, gdy umarł na krzyżu - mówił wzruszony ks. Zawadzki.

I have a terrible feeling Jesus himself would hate it. I've always imagined him as a really cool bloke and a bit of a hippie (I guess I've read The Master and Margarita too many times). Anyways, wasn't there something about Moses and the Golden Calf in the Bible?

As a warszawianka, I'm just happy that this construction isn't in front of the Presidential Palace :)

I, too, think that someone such as Jesus would not especially like such figures of himself, but what can ya do?

To be fair, the statue is aesthetically pleasing. I have to admire Father Zawadzki for his drive. He was able to garner support - psychological and financial - for this project and see it through to the end. Jeez, I'd just like to make a vegetable patch in my garden and erect a pretty cool scarecrow and somehow I cannot get it done.

I'm interested to see what exactly this statue becomes for Polish people - a meeting place, a place to worship, a place to protest? We'll see.

America needs a bigger Jesus because God is looking down from space, trying to figure out who loves him the most.

His nose is way too small for a Jew.
