  • Description

    The skyline of Havana Harbour is now dominated by a seven hundred ton marble colossus of Christ sculptured by Jilma Madera. This scriptures spent seven months, with the help of forty labourers, carving this, one of the biggest statues of Christ in the world.

    The marble was shipped from Italy and Miss Madera has attempted to show the serenity, tenderness and supreme nobility of the Messiah.

    The statue's composure contrasts vividly with the present strife and unrest in Cuba.
