**A Great Discount Is Available!!---Click on my Name Above (Listed By...) to read about my Multi-Sale Discount Offer in my Closet Profile** Created in Brazil and modeled on the famed Rio de Janiero Statue "Christ the Redeemer," this exquisite Brazilian carved vintage statuette is exquisite. Its beautifully toned and textured wood is the perfect complement for the spare, simplistic carving style. On its pedestal base the word "Rio" is carved while the arms outstretched make plain the message; I came for all, and for all---I gave my all...I'm still here, for all. It is profoundly simple, amazingly uncomplicated and profoundly beautiful. -- The idea of the original was first suggested in the 1850's by Vicentian priest, Pedro Maria Boss, suggested placing a Christian monument on Mt. Corcovado to honor Princess Isabel. Although this proposal was not successful, in 1920, a second proposal was made by the Catholic Circle of Rio who organized an event called Semana do Monumento ("Monument Week") to attract donations and collect signatures to support the building of the statue. Designed by Heitor da Silva Costa, with a core of reinforced concrete designed by Albert Caquot and outer layers sculpted from soapstone by Paul Landowski, the face was created by Gheorghe Leonida. Construction took nine years, from 1922 to 1931, cost the equivalent of US$250,000 ($3,300,000 today-2015) with final hieght at 98 feet. The monument was opened on October 12, 1931, consecrated October 12, 1931 and deemed one of the New Seven Wonders of the World July 7, 2007.
