Thorvaldsen's Christus

The rotunda of the North Visitors' Center on Temple Square was prepared specifically to provide a setting for this reproduction of Danish sculptor Bertel Thorvaldsen's Christus Statue. In fact, due to the statue's size, it was necessary to lower it into place before the building in which it resides could be completed.

Outside, the view through the window reveals the dome of the Tabernacle, home of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. - Martin van Hemert
