Towering at 149 feet, the statue is located on a 12,000-foot mountain south of La Paz, the countrys second largest city. It stands 22 feet taller than the Christ the Redeemer statue atop Rio de Janeiro, Brazil....The presentation of the $1.2 million statue also marked the beginning of Carnaval in Orugo. The citys festival is the only Carnaval celebration that includes a dance in honor of the Virgin Mary....The closing procession, which took place on the evening of Feb. 3, featured nearly 50 dancers making their way to the shrine, where they asked the Virgin Mary for her intercession.
Nice try though.
May she magnify the lord Jesus. Thank you God.
We praise Thee o Lord and we adore Thee.
What are those grey splotches scattered all over the statue? Looks like it’s pockmarked with bullet holes.
