Christ the Redeemer statue is silhouetted against the glow of the moonset in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
A worker hauls in a rope while perched on the shoulder of the Christ the Redeemer statue during a media tour following a ceremony blessing the workers by the Archbishop of Rio de Janeiro, Dom Orani Tempesta, on Friday. The statue in Brazil’s second-largest city was damaged by multiple lightning strikes recently and crews are beginning to repair the damage while adding more lightning rods.
