The center-piece of this shrine is a cross carved from a single redwood tree. It is 55 feet high, 22 feet wide. The bronze figure of Jesus that is attached to the redwood cross is the work of a famous sculptor, Marshall Fredericks. It weights seven tons. Other shrines are situated on the grounds. The Shrine is privileged to be the home for the largest collection of dolls dressed in traditional habits of men and women religious communities in the United States.
