It may be just the 5th largest statue of Jesus in the world, but Cristo Redentor (Christ the Redeemer) in Rio de Janeiro is certainly the most famous.

The Art Deco statue was built between 1922 and 1931 atop Corcovado mountain to serve as a symbol of Brazilian Christianity and peace. Thousands of tourists flock to the statue everyday, so get there early if you hope to snap a clear shot - the Cristo’s a popular guy!
