The Christ in San Joaquín

This Christ, by Hernán Puelma (1982), is located at the entrance of the Catholic University's San Joaquin campus.
It is very famous, but not because of its artistic value, but for its resemblance with Batman. This is why it is often affectionately referred to as the "BatChrist".

Daqui, de onde o vejo, parece-me absolutamente genial.

Redimensionaliza o âmbito conceitual de quem Abre Braços ao Mundo.
Quanta elegância.

Soberbo!

I love this picture just for the simple fact that I used to go by the statue every day! I studied abroad in Santiago four years ago, and this was the campus that I attended. Lots of fond memories come flooding back when I see this!

Maybe Señor Puelma has read some Batman comics before becoming creative... :)

Nice pictures you have here. You should post more often. Thanks for the tips. Planning on travelling to Santiago and the pictures helped to understand a little more the atmosphere of the city.
