Published Nov 22, 2019In the Bible, Baby Jesus doesn't technically appear until the book of Matthew, but a Mexican church apparently got that confused with Genesis. After all, its new giant statue bears a striking resemblance to one Phil Collins.
The new statue, sculpted by Roman Salvador and recently revealed at a church in Guadalupe, certainly has us feeling something in the air tonight, oh Lord.
As Twitter user JoseManuelRadio first observed, the giant Jesus statue looks an awful lot like the former Genesis frontman and successful solo musician, complete with a tuft of hair in the middle of a bald spot:
Of course, the internet had a lot of fun with the statue's likeness:
No matter who it's intended to look like, the statue is incredibly impressive. As the Guardian reports, the statue is 6.7 metres tall and weighs 900 kilograms, meaning it's possibly the largest baby Jesus statue in the world. We're going to go ahead and wager that it's definitely the largest Phil Collins statue in the world.
