In Brazil, a statue larger than the famous Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro is being built. The new statue of Christ in Brazil is surprising because of the size that this statue will have, being the tallest in that country.
This new statue is called Christ the Protector, and it is said that it will be the third largest statue in the world. The construction of this new statue, the Christ Protector, has caused emotion to all the inhabitants of Brazil.
The Christ Protector will be 43 meters high, and will have arms outstretched for 36 meters. Rio de Janeiro’s famous statue, Christ the Redeemer, is 38 meters high.
The Christ Protector statue is located in a place with an excellent view, and has an elevator that goes from the feet to the chest at a height of 40 meters where visitors can enjoy a beautiful viewpoint. This work is expected to be ready by the end of this year 2021.
