Product Description
This is a 15 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on the New Seven Wonders of the World – Christ the Redeemer. Each of the slides are editable so you can modify the slides if you need to.

Christ the Redeemer, (Cristo Redentor), is a colossal statue of Jesus Christ that stands at the summit of Mount Corcovado, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It was completed in 1931 and stands 98 feet tall, its horizontally outstretched arms spanning 92 feet. The statue, made of reinforced concrete clad in a mosaic of thousands of triangular soapstone tiles, sits on a square stone pedestal base about 26 feet high, which itself is situated on a deck atop the mountain’s summit.

The statue was built to make a statement about Christianity. After World War I, the idea to build a statue resurfaced when the Roman Catholic archdiocese in Rio, together with a group of Brazilians, grew concerned about a lack of religious faith in Brazil. It was decided that a massive statue of Jesus on a nearby mountain would make a significant, lasting statement. Engineer Costa, whose design was ultimately chosen in 1922, envisioned that the statue should face the rising sun.

The statue is the largest Art Deco-style sculpture in the world and is one of Rio de Janeiro’s most recognizable landmarks. In 2007, it was voted as one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.

The presentation covers the following:
