The statue of “The Resurrection” located in the Vatican's Paul VI
Audience Hall is receiving some restoration work which is scheduled to
finish by December 9th. The statue can often be seen behind the pope
during his general audiences that are held in the hall.
October 3rd also marked the 34th anniversary since the statue was introduced to the hall by it's creator Pericle Fazzini.
When he created it in 1977, Fazzini explained that the statue shows Jesus rising from the crater of a nuclear bomb. “The Resurrection” is made from bronze and measures 66 feet tall and 23 feet wide.
