The new Christ the Redeemer statue in Encantado, Brazil

Emanuele D'Angelo

Strange but true, in Brazil, in Encantado, a city in Rio Grande do Su, they are building another statue of Christ that will be taller than the one of the Redeemer that dominates the city of Rio de Janeiro.

Work is underway, already last week the arms, which have a span of 36 meters and the head were laid, the project should be completed at the end of 2021.
With its 43 meters height, it will be the third tallest statue in the world, 43 meters, five more than the original that is included among the Seven Wonders of the World.

The mastermind of the project was Italian-born Adroaldo Conzatti, mayor of the town where the statue will rise but who unfortunately passed away prematurely due to Covid.
According to his vision, the new Christ the Redeemer will serve to revive tourism in the region and attract more visitors.

The statue in total cost about 300 thousand euros and was financed exclusively by private citizens and companies. Waiting for it to be completed here are the first photos of the new statue of Christ the Redeemer that will rise in Encantado.
