Standing atop the peak of Corcovado, the mountain overlooking the city of Rio De Janeiro, the 130 foot tall statue of Christ known as Cristo Redentore is considered one of the wonders of the modern world. Made of reinforced concrete and soapstone, this stirring and inspirational landmark is the largest Art Deco statue in the world, and the fifth largest statue of Jesus Christ in the world, and was painstakingly constructed over nine years between 1922 and 1931. The view from above the statue is almost as iconic as the statue itself, having been referenced in television and cinema for decades, the awe-inspiring view of Rio spread out beneath the outstretched arms of Christ like a sinner receiving a benediction.
