Touchdown Jesus

This huge statue of Jesus is located off  interstate 75 between Cincinatti and Dayton in the town of Monroe Ohio.    He was built by the Solid Rock Church in 2004, is 62 feet tall, made out of wood, metal, fiberglass and foam.  He took over 60 gallons of paint.    The big statue has been nicknamed Touchdown Jesus because of his raised hands. He looks especially good on this overcast day.   If you go by here, stop and pull into the church and take a look at this big guy.  He is quite awe inspiring.
