Christ The Redeemer

Rio de Janeiro

Christ the Redeemer is a monumental statue of Christ. Installed on Mount Corvocado, it overlooks Rio de Janeiro. 

An icon of the city, the statue is 38 metres high and as such is one of the world’s largest statues.

Designed by Brazilian engineer Heitor da Silva Costa, it was created by French sculptor Paul Landowski and Romanian sculptor Gheorghe Leonida (for the head), then erected in collaboration with the French engineer Albert Caquot.

Completed in 1931, the statue is made of reinforced concrete and soapstone, a soft yet very resistant rock. The head weighs 30 tons, each hand eight tons, and the span of the outstretched hands is 28 metres.

The statue is hand-engraved on a gold base and stands out majestically from the landscape with a relief applique.

It faces a sea whose floor is hand-engraved and then enamelled in translucent azure blue.

47mm 18K Rose Gold hand-engraved.

Unique Piece, Number 01/01

Enamel

The mountains are also glazed in opaque Grand Feu enamel. To instil even more life into this creation, the multicoloured buildings of the town are depicted in enamelled micro-painting.

Hand-Engravings

The case features a skilful reinterpretation of the decorative elements of the Brazilian coat of arms: coffee leaves and tobacco leaves.
