Men Working On The Christ The Redeemer Statue Had Our Jaws Dropping!

These daring men are walking on one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. They’re risking their lives to do repairs due to a lightening strike that hit the limb, of the Christ The Redeemer statue, in Rio de Janeiro. We were amazed at the heights these dedicated men are working at. The concrete and soapstone statue is 30 meters high, the pedestal is another 8 meters, and the statue is located on the 700 meter peak of Corcovado mountain. The statue is truly enormous from hand to hand the distance is 28 meters and it weighs 700 tons. The statue is a greatly recognized symbol of Christianity world wide. This awesome structure is a wonderful tribute to Our Lord that some day we look forward to visiting.
