Yesus Memberkati Statue (Jesus Blesses) in Manado, Sulawesi Island, Indonesia,

Local people call it the Flying Jesus.

Jesus Blesses or Christ Blessing (in Manado language is Yesus Kase Berkat or Kristus Kase Berkat) is a statue of Jesus Christ in Manado, North Sulawesi, Indonesia. The structure stands 50 m (158.3 feet) tall and consists of 20 me of pedestal and 30 me of statue. It is made of 25 tons of metal fiber and 35 tons of steel, and is located at the peak of the CitraLand residential estate. As of 2010 it is Asia's 2nd tallest and the world's 4th tallest statue of Christ (excluding the pedestal it was erected on).

The idea came from Ir. Ciputra, an Indonesian real estate developer, when he and his wife stood on the place where the statue is now. The statue was built for Manado and North Sulawesi society and to worship God. The construction took nearly three years by the Yogyakarta Engineer. The cost of the monument was five billion rupiah (about 540,000 dollars).
