Christian or not, one needs to admit that the Christ the Redeemer is such a feat. This massive sculpture is so impressive, one would question how can an artist do this. Let alone have the structure placed at the top of the hill. Nonetheless, let your eyes be satisfied with this massive work of art.

Let your heart and mind go, and let your soul do the dancing. This will be a refreshing act from your very hectic lifestyle.
