Second Life Photo of the Day: Christ the Redeemer

Today is the first Sunday of Advent, a season observed in many Christian churches, and a  time of expectant waiting and preparation for the celebration of the Nativity of Jesus at Christmas.  And I think it is a perfect day to show these new photographs.

This week, I found this gorgeous statue of Christ the Redeemer, one of the national symbols of Brazil, and one of the most beautiful sites in Rio de Janeiro (see below for a real life picture) built only two sims away from our house. The statue is listed as one of the New Seven Wonders of the World and the only one built in modern times.

The statue is built to scale and is gigantic. I am standing on the shoulder of this statue to give you an idea of how big it is. The statue is built to scale, and is about 40 meters tall in real life including the base (my avatar is two meters tall). If you want to visit it, this SLURL will take you to a pier right near the statue -- fly up to visit .

Please have a wonderful holiday season!
