333. cristo redentor

Cristo central, Recoleta Cemetery

This 1914 sculpture by Pedro Zonza Briano occupies the former center of Recoleta Cemetery where a well was once located. Although famous during his lifetime, Zonza Briano has faded from current public memory. Another of his distinctive sculptures is seen by thousands of people every day as they walk from Plaza San Martín to the Retiro train station… an homage to Leandro N. Alem, founder of the UCR political party & one of the leaders of the 1890 Revolution:
