Rio de Janeiro’s Christ the Redeemer statue in LEGO

Nelic73 has built a very detailed recreation of the famous statue of Christ that overlooks the city of Rio de Janeiro. The detailing on the face and the folds of the robe is first-rate.

I didn’t know until just now that this statue is the largest Art Deco statue in the world. I guess you do learn something new everyday.

    It’s an impressive build, but I can’t help but wonder: does it eliminate anarchy and the wait between civic/religious changes?

    @Gabry – As Thanel said, I was referring to the Art Deco bit. Actually, according to the Wikipedia article, this is the fifth tallest statue of Jesus.

    @Catsy – It would be a truly impressive MOC if it did. But then it would highlighted in more places than TBB. ;)

    I have to say I am supremely jealous. I have had this on my “radar” for an MOC for quite some time, and I’m afraid I would not be able to nearly do it justice.

    Btw, the actual statue in person is astonishing.
