11ft marble crucifix revealed in Lake Michigan

Still Waters

Recommended Posts

Posted (IP: Staff) ·

Hundreds of people traveled to the small northern Michigan town of Petoskey for the chance of catching a glimpse of a rare sight - a life-sized statue of Jesus Christ on the cross submerged in Lake Michigan.

Severe weather has prevented anyone from seeing the 11-ft., 1,850 lb. religious symbol made of marble since 2015, when a record-sized crowd of 2,021 people stood in line for hours in frigid temperatures to see it.

Lake Michigan is currently frozen and workers had to cut a hole through the ice on Saturday so that an estimated 1,200 sightseers could see the giant Jesus submerged under the water.

Nothing says "we love and miss you" to people who've passed on while on/in the water like a statue of a guy being tortured to death.... apparently.
