The statue of Jesus is 43 meters high, including the pedestal, making it the third tallest statue of its kind in the world.
And it separates one of his hands from the other 36 meters. The monument will be equipped with an internal elevator.
The project is worth two million riyals (about $ 351,000), funded by donations and without public funds, according to the Friends of Christ Association.
The construction of the statue, with its arms and legs installed, began this week in 2019 in Incantado (22,000 people), located 144 kilometers from Porto Alegre, in the state of Rio Grande del Sur.
It is expected to be completed at the end of the year, according to the Friends of Christ Association, which is coordinating its construction.
The statue of "Christ the Redeemer" in Corcovado is 38 meters long with its pedestal and was inaugurated in October 1931.
The new statue, which was installed on Cerro de las Antenas Hill, was designed by a priest of Incantado "as an expression of the faith of the people of Incantado and the promotion of tourism in the region".
