Christus Statue – Salt Lake City Tours
An 11-foot replica of the Christus statute stands in the North Visitors Center on Temple Square. The original statue was commissioned by the Church of Our Lady in Copenhagen, created by Bertel Thorvaldsen in 1821. An American textbook proclaimed it to be the most perfect statue of Christ in the world. The replica on Temple Square conveys to visitors that Mormons are Christians. The mural of the universe provides an impressive backdrop.
