A huge statue of Jesus Christ was erected in a small Polish town, marking the end of a five-year project led by the local priest that has divided opinion throughout the country.

The effigy stands at a total of 51m (167ft). The statue itself is 33 m, one metre for every year that Jesus lived, according to creator Reverend Sylwester Zawadzki.

However, with its gold crown, the white landmark is 36m (118ft) tall, and if the mound it stands on is also taken into account, it measures 51m (167ft).
