Christ Redeemer (1931) Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

This statue of Jesus stands some 38 meters tall, atop the Corcovado mountain overlooking Rio de Janeiro. Designed by Brazilian Heitor da Silva Costa and created by French sculptor Paul Landowski, it is one of the world?s best-known monuments. The statue took five years to construct and was inaugurated on October 12, 1931. It has become a symbol of the city and of the warmth of the Brazilian people, who receive visitors with open arms.

Too bad you can't consider the French Foreign Legion one...this unit is one of the world's oldest military outfits.

 

Anywhoo, my Number One vote (out of these insanely limited choices, talk about rigging an election!!! drillsergeant.gif ) would be the Statue of Liberty.
