Rio de Janeiro engineer Heitor da Silva Costa designed the O Cristo Redentor, which was then sculpted by Polish sculptor Paul Landowski — a French monument sculptor. O Cristo Redentor is made of steel with outer layers of soapstone, chosen for its enduring qualities and ease of use (softness for carving). Construction took nine years — from 1922 to 1931. O Cristo Redentor was unveiled on October 12, 1931. An observation deck surrounds the statue and offers beautiful views of Rio de Janiero and the Atlantic Ocean.
