Brazil Holds a Characteristic Dynamism

The statue of Christ on Corcovado

The statue of Christ on Corcovado

I think, it seems that the huge statue of Christ on the hill of Corcovado symbolizes the dynamism of Brazil. For Brazilians, Christ was a pagan god who was brought by the Portuguese in the 16th century.

But Christianity got mixed with the native Brazilian religion, and that gave a new shade and dynamism in Brazil. Now, the most prosperous carnival in the world is held in Rio de Janeiro every year with the huge statue of Christ watching over the city from the top of the hill.

I am fascinated that Brazil holds this characteristic dynamism. I am looking forward to seeing many hot faces of Brazil at the Summer Olympic Games in 2016.
