ABSTRACT
The article announces that the statue of Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro was named one of the new Seven Wonders of the World after seven years of campaigning. The campaign was launched in 2001 by Swiss-born Canadian film-maker and adventurer Bernard Weber whose goal was to bring attention and respect to the world's diverse cultural heritage. It was run by the New7Wonders Foundation partnered by the United Nations and several experts. Other new wonders include the Great Wall of China, Machu Pichu of Peru and the Taj Mahal in India.
