Underwater Statue of Jesus in Malta [Photograph]

Underwater on the sea bed near the shores of Malta in the Meditteranean stands a three metre tall, 13 ton statue of Jesus. Maltese sculptor Alfred Camilleri Cauchi was commissioned to commemorate the 1990 visit of Pope John Paul II to Malta. After being blessed by His Holiness, the statue was placed on the seabed near St Paul’s Islands as an attraction for divers.
