A small Polish town today has finished building what they claim is the largest Jesus statue in the world, even bigger than Rio's Christ the Redeemer. New Jesus is 167 feet tall, while Rio's stands at 125 feet. Pics inside!

Residents of the town of Swiebodzin are hoping this new, gigantic Jesus will attract Roman Catholic pilgrims, who would also bring in some hard cash. "The statue will make Swiebodzin famous all over Poland," one resident told the AP. Well, congrats, Swiebodzin! Just make sure he's been fireproofed.
