Daily Times, United Arab Emirates: - The sculptor Genesio Mora, his son, and Marcos are sculpting a new giant statue of Christ in Brazil that will exceed the height of the famous "Christ the Redeemer", which overlooks Rio de Janeiro from its position on Corcovado Hill.

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".
