The guardian of Quito, Ec


AirVuz contributor ContemporAd brings us this excellent drone video of one of the most famous statues in South America.  It's called the Virgin of El Panecillo, and it's located atop its namesake hill in the heart of the Ecuadorean capital city.  Standing 41 meters (about 135 ft.), it's one of the continent's tallest statue and is also the world's tallest statues made of aluminum.  Completed in the 1970's, it's a (much) larger replica of a wooden structure by Bernardo de Legarda which dates to the first half of the 18th century.
