Replica of Santa Catarina

Replica of Santa Catarina

Santa-Catarina

This copy of the Statue of Liberty, very imposing, in front of the store "Havan" Santa Catarina, Brazil. It is controversial, some people finding it too big, too showy. I must say it is rather large (at least 6 meters high). It is not consistent, ie it does not look exactly like the original. It has, for example, the radii of the crown and too vertical too short. Her face is too hard, its crown is too high, and she wears her too low shelf. Her arm extended is not free from defects: The position of the fingers on the handle of the torch is incorrect, the torch itself is not identical to that of the New York statue, and the toga was not enough folds, it is too smooth.

In Santo Antonio do Carmo, on the Atlantic coast of Brazil, is a park in the center which requested the municipality to local artists to provide a draft statue commemorating the heroes of June 25, 1822. The winning design was that of Mr Alberto Cachoeirano Rabello, who received the sum of fifty thousand reis to build this monument. He decided to make a replica of the Statue Liberty dela which was inaugurated on October 12, 1930. This statue is not consistent, it has many fault compared to the original. Its base is particularly high and narrow.
