Christ the Redeemer statue stands 39.6 metres (130 ft) tall, including its 9.5 metre (31 ft) pedestal, and 30 metres (98 ft) wide. It weighs 635 tons, and is located at the peak of the 700 metres (2,300 ft) Corcovado mountain (Corcovado meaning “hunchback” in Portuguese) in the Tijuca Forest National Park overlooking the city of Rio de Janeiro. It is one of the tallest statues of its kind in the world. The statue of Cristo la Concordia in Cochabamba, Bolivia, is slightly taller, standing at 40.44 metres (132.7 ft) tall with its 6.24 metres (20.5 ft) pedestal and 34.20 metres (112.2 ft) wide. A symbol of Catholicism, the statue has become an icon of Rio and Brazil. It is made of reinforced concrete and soapstone atop the peak of Corcovado, a big granite dome claimed to be the highest such formation in Brazil.
