Sutherland, Woronora Cemetery, statue

The "Resurrection of Jesus" is a statue which stands in the Catholic section of the Woronora General Cemetery, in the southern suburb of Sutherland. This 3 metre tall statue which weighs 3.5 tonnes was installed in 2012 as part of a "Stations of the Cross" monument. It has been placed in water, symbolic of Christ's life giving message: "Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life."
