Church Unveils Lego Jesus Statue for Easter

A Swedish church unveiled a life-size statue of Jesus Christ during their Easter morning mass, AFP reported.

The nearly 30,000 Lego bricks used to make the 5.8 foot statue were donated by parishioners, Per Wilder, the pastor of the Oensta Gryta Church in Vaesteras told AFP.

"It is a fantastic installation and it will be there as long as we think it is in a good spot," Wilder said. "All those I spoke with were full of praise, saying how fantastic the model looks and how much good work we put into this."

Wilder said work on the statue was started a year and a half ago.
