Christ the Redeemer (statue) Brazil

 Christ the Redeemer (statue) Brazil

Heather da Silva Costa, a Brazilian engineer, in collaboration with French engineer Albert Cacot, built by French sculptor Paul Landdowski.  Romanian sculptor Leonida fashioned the look around.  Built between 1922 and 1931, the statue is 30 meters (98 feet) high, excluding the 8-meter (26-foot) main chamber.  The arms are 28 meters (92 feet) wide.

The statue weighs 635 metric tons (625 long, short tons), and Tizuka overlooks the city of Rio de Janeiro.  Forest National Park is located at the top of the 700-meter (2,300-foot) Mount Corcovado.  A symbol of Christianity around the world, the statue has become an icon of culture in both Rio de Janeiro and Brazil, and the New Wonders of the World.

 As listed.  It is made of reinforced concrete and soap stone.

The image shows the incredible height of the mountainous location, allowing the statue to be viewed from multiple vantage points around Rio de Janeiro.

 Vincentian priest Pedro Maria Boss first suggested setting up a Christian monument in honor of Princess Isabel, daughter of the Brazilian prince and second emperor Pedro, in the mid-1850s, but the project was not authorized.  In 1889, the country became a republic and the statue presented was disbanded due to the separation of church and state.

A lightning strike struck the statue on February 10, 2008, causing extensive damage to the fingers, head, and eyebrows.  The Rio state government began renewed efforts to replace and repair lightning rods on several of the statues in the outer decorative layers.  Lightning damaged it again, on January 16, 2014, removing the finger of the right hand.

In 2010, a massive reconstruction of the statue began.  Work includes cleaning, replacing extruded mortar and soapstone, restoring iron to internal structures, and waterproofing the memorial.  The vandals attacked the statue during the renovation, spraying paint on the arm.  Mayor Eduardo Pace called the law a "crime against the nation."  And the perpetrators later apologized and appeared before the police.

Workers had to be evacuated during the construction of the project in the late 1920s and early 1930s.
