The stunning highlight inside the North Visitors’ Center is an 11 foot replica of Christus. The 12,000 pound statue is enhanced by a circular painting of the universe. The original Christ with outstretched arms was carved from white Carrara marble by Bertel Thorvaldsen in 1821. That sculpture is at the Church of Our Lady in Copenhagen, Denmark. This facsimile arrived at Temple Square in 1966. Additional copies of Christus are displayed in about 20 visitor centers at LDS Church compounds across the world.
