Christ the Redeemer at Sunset – Rio de Janeiro, Brazilย 
Dominating the skyline of the “beautiful city” from the tallest hill at the back of the Brazilian metropolis’ sandy beaches, this colossal Art Deco statue of Christ is the most iconic image of Rio and is absolutely stunning in the striking light of sunset. Constructed between 1922 and 1931, the statue is 30 metres high, with the arms stretching 28 metres wide. A dwarf in comparison to the tallest statue in the world, recently inaugurated in Gujarat, India, standing 182 metres high and representing Indian statesman and independence activist Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel.
