About Christ the Redeemer
One of the most recognised statues in the world is that of Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Christ with his arms outstretched, seeming to embrace the whole of mankind is revered by Christians the world over and is on the bucket list of almost all travellers to Brazil. Standing tall at 38 meters, Christ the Redeemer, was created by Paul Landowski, a French sculptor and is a collaboration of two people- Brazilian engineer Heitor da Silva Costa and French engineer Albert Caquot. The pristine look on the face of Christ is attributed to Romanian sculptor Gheorghe Leonida. Also known as Cristo Redentor in Portuguese, Christ the Redeemer is situated atop the Corcovado mountain in Rio and is fashioned out of soapstone. Visited by more than 3 million people each year, the statue was completed in 1931 and dedicated to Christ on 12th October of the year.
