Best Statue Of Jesus

Charles Umlauf's "Kneeling Christ"

There's something aesthetically pleasing and strangely reassuring about a Versace Christ. Umlauf's style is sleek, elegant, and energetic, and this statue is a surprising counter to its parent building, the monolithic, "I Like Ike-era" Seton Medical Center.
