Following the photo I posted to Flickr yesterday ( of the statue of
"Christ the Redeemer" high above Rio de Janeiro )
this was what it looked like up close -- in the mist and clouds !
To view my other photos of this statue please use link below :
Christ the Redeemer (Portuguese: O Cristo Redentor) is a statue of
Jesus Christ in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
The statue stands 38 metres (120 ft) tall weighs 635 tonnes (700 short tons), and is located at the peak of the 700 metres (2,300 ft) Corcovado mountain in the Tijuca Forest National Park overlooking the city.
It is the tallest of its kind in the world. It is made of reinforced concrete and soapstone.
A symbol of Christianity, the statue has become an icon of Rio and Brazil.
