A shoe-shaped church is expected to open next month in Taiwan.
The church, which is about 17-metres tall and 11-metres wide, took three months to build.
The glitzy modern sculpture, made from blue glass and steel, cost around €630,000.
The church is expected to open before the Lunar New Year, according to a Chiayi county government official.
The shoe will not be used as a place of worship but its creators hope it will attract young couples who wish to use it as a backdrop for their wedding photos.
The church is the latest bid from authorities to boost tourism to the area.
