"Awe-Inspiring Landmark"

Spurred by palpable feelings of 'Godlessness' that plagued the nation following the Brazilian Republic's creation in 1889, the Cristo Redentor, or Christ The Redeemer, was built as watchful symbol over Mount Corcovado. The Statue stands atop a pedestal, an everlasting effigy emblematic of a spiritual re-awakening that gazes stoically onto the city below. The brainchild of Heitor da Silva Costa and French sculptor Paul Landowski, the statue soars over city limits at a height of 38 meters (125 feet), including its pedestal. The magnificent figurine is made of reinforced concrete and soapstone, and features a quiet chapel at the base. With its outstretched arms, the Christ The Redeemer Statue denotes a convergence of olden depictions of Christ (symbolizing the cross), and more modern interpretations that believe it to be a symbol of peace.
