A replica of Thorvaldsen’s Christus, commissioned by LDS Church ”to help visitors understand that Latter-day Saints are Christians”. A towering marble figure of 3.4-metres (11-foot) replica displayed in front of a star-studded mural. It certainly is convincing.
PS: The original Christus is displayed in Denmark’s Church of Our Lady, in Copenhagen.
