Product Description

This awe-inspiring cultured marble Christus statue depicts Jesus Christ just as the scriptures describe Him, beckoning to us with open arms in a most pleasant manner, as if saying: “Come unto me.”

*Depending on the marble available at time of production, coloring and shade may vary from picture shown.

The original Christus statue by Sculptor Albert Bertel Thorvaldsen (1770-1844) was made of plaster in 1823 and was used to create the 11-foot marble version in 1839 that stands today in the Church of Our Lady in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Thorvaldsen spent 40 years in Rome. There he made a sepulchral monument for Pope Pius VII in St. Peter's Cathedral and numerous statues in the style of antiquity. While in Rome he also worked on another one of his masterpieces, “Christ and the 12 Apostles” which made him internationally known as the greatest sculptor of neo-classicism.

He returned to Copenhagen where he started and completed his greatest work, the Christus. After Thorvaldsen's death in 1844, the Christus was erected in the Copenhagen Cathedral. This marvelous work of inspired art has now been painstakingly created in exact detail as the original.

I just had a birthday, and my husband (a nonmember) gave me the 12 inch Christus. It is beautiful, and was a real surprise. He is stunning, and I feel such a sense of peace when you look at him. I really pleased with this statue. And, it lets me know that he knows how important my chuch is to me. Makes a wonderful gift.

Beautiful peace

Firstly, you wouldn't want to get the statue any smaller than the 12". The 12" is nice but still small.
I am very happy with my purchase. For me, this item brings the spirit every time I look at it. It helps me make better choices in my home.
You won't regret this purchase.
