This is a new sculpture of the late Pope John Paul II that was unveiled in Czestochowa, Poland, on Saturday.

The 13.8 metre figure is made from white fibreglass and was unveiled by Archbishop Waclaw Depo.

It was funded by a businessman, Leszek Lyson, in gratitude for what he believes was an intervention by the late pontiff in saving his drowning son.
