One of the most famous statues of Jesus—Rio de Janeiro’s towering Christ the Redeemer—has some new competition. An even taller statue is currently under construction in Brazil, titled Christ the Protector.

The statue, also depicting Jesus Christ with arms outstretched as if on the cross, will stand more than 140 feet tall, with a wingspan of more than 90 feet wide. It is the work of sculptor Genésio Gomes Moura and his son Markus, and was financed by the Friends of Christ Association.
