Mini Christ the Redeemer Statue

While jogging along the beach my wife and I ran into a mini "Christ the Redeemer" statue at the south end of South Padre Island in the trailer park. If memory serves me correct, the statue is a tribute to all those who lost their lives at sea near there.

[Irwin & Victorina, 01/21/2014]

Officially named "Christ of the Fishermen," the statue was erected in 1999.
