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 metres (158.3 feet) tall and consists of 20 metres of pedestal and 30 metres of statue. It is made of 25 tonnes of metal fibre and 35 tonnes of steel, and is located at the peak of the Citraland residential estate.
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 a Yogyakarta Engineer. The cost of the monument was five billion rupiah (about 540,000 dollars).
This statue has a declivity 20 degree and is made from fiber and steel and became the “first tallest flying statue in the world.”
