Bosnian Catholics, parishioners of the Bila community near the western Bosnian town of Livno, dressed in traditional costume, prepare to lift a statue Jesus Christ on a crucifix, on Friday April 3, 2009. The wooden statue of Jesus Christ on the crucifix was made by local artist, Branko Ivankovic, 55. The crucifix is 9 meters (29 feet six inches) tall and and 4 meters (13 feet) wide and carries the 2.25 meters (7 feet 3 inches) body of Jesus Christ. This is believed to be world’s biggest statue of Christ carved out of single piece of solid wood. Ivankovic delegated his statue to enter The Guinness Book of Records.
