The largest Art Deco sculpture in the world, Christ the Redeemer was created by Polish-French sculptor Paul Landowski and Romanian sculptor Gheorghe Leonida. It was built between 1922 and 1931 at the peak of the Corcovado mountain in the Tijuca Forest National Park overlooking the city of Rio as a symbol of peace and Brazilian Christianity. Since then it has become an icon for Rio de Janeiro and Brazil.
