Christus

Christus is a 19th-century Carrara marble statue of the resurrected Jesus, by Bertel Thorvaldsen.  Since its creation, the statue has been located in the Church of Our Lady, in Copenhagen, Denmark.  In the 20th century, images and replicas of the statue were adopted by the leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints  (LDS church) to emphasize the centrality of Jesus Christ in church teachings.
