Jesus: He's Back! and he wants a Hug!
- hhanks, CNN iReport producer
In June 2010 the Big Jesus Statue at The Solid Rock Church near Cincinnati, Ohio was struck by lightning and burned to the ground!
Now just about two years later. Jesus is Back! A new Jesus statue that is. The old figure had its arms stretched up in the air earning it the name "Touchdown Jesus". This one has its arm reaching out and people are starting to call it "Hug Me Jesus"
The new Jesus statue or the Lux Mundi (Latin for "Light of the World") was designed by Tom Tsuchiya also known as Norikazu.
What do you think about the new Jesus statue? What would you call it as a nickname?
