“Tallest statue of Jesus in the USA”

Every inch of the remarkable sculpture was built by hand. No poured segments were used in the statue's construction. At an altitude of 1500 feet, the statue is made of 24 layers of white mortar on a steel frame and weighs over two million pounds. The foundation, which is virtually welded into the rock of the mountain, required 340 tons of concrete interlaced with steel. During construction, the framework of the statue was completely surrounded by scaffolding. Workers had to build an elevator up the side of the framework in order to reach the statue's higher segments. Taller than most humans, the hands from wrist to fingertip measure approximately 7 feet. The statue's arm spread from fingertip to fingertip spans 65 feet and its overall height is 67 feet.

You can't miss him. When you get up close you can actually tell that the whole thing was built by hand, it's pretty awesome. Nothing much in the gift shop you'd actually want to buy but maybe a postcard.

This was very cool to see in person. There's a gift shop with restrooms just before you get to it too.

I'm not religious but it is a neat statue. It can be seen from many places far away.
