Easter Blessings Card


Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro, with arms outstretched, is always blessing all those below him. The Cristo Redentor statue is visible virtually anywhere in the city. The statue's pedestal is the 2310-foot mountain, Corcovado. The contemporary Christ figure on top rises another 100 feet, its arms extending nearly 92 feet from fingertip to fingertip.The soapstone and concrete construction weighs app. 700 tons. French sculptor Paul Landowski and a team of artisans erected the statue to commemorate the hundredth anniversary of Brazilian independence from Portugal in1822. Due to budget issues, the centennial artwork wasn't finished until 1931, after help from the Vatican. The sleek and impressive Cristo Redentor statue was voted as one of the New Wonders Of The World in 2007.

I have sold creative works as an oil painter, water colorist, ceramic artist (trained at historic Pewabic Pottery), copper enameler, and photographer.

The Cristo de la Concordia monument is situated on a hilltop overlooking Cochabamba in central Bolivia. It is a copy of the famous Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. At 40.4m high and weighing 2,200 tonnes it is slightly larger than the Brazilian statue; it is the largest statue of Jesus in the world and the largest statue in the southern hemisphere. The Christ the King statue at Świebodzin, Poland is slightly taller though without its 3m crown the actual figure of Christ is smaller.
