The highest mountain in Rio, at 700 meters, is called the Corcovado, which means "hunchback". At the top of it is the statue of Christ the Redeemer, one of the new seven wonders of the world. A giant made of soapstone, the Corcovado Christ is 38 meters high by 28 meters wide. It was made by the French sculptor Paul Landowski and the Brazilian engineer Heitor da Silva Costa.
