In August 2017, Lebanon looks with mixed feelings at a giant statue of Saint Charbel as it is transported and erected on the highest mountaintop in Faraya. The project’s contracting company, Beirut International Marine Industry and Commerce S.A.R.L, is otherwise known for its techno-industrial feats in the field of marine engineering and for plans to build the ‘first floating island in the Middle East’.
