The fervently Catholic South American country’s social media users compared it to the portrayal commonly seen in Renaissance artwork.
Others said it looked like the famous Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Not only is the ‘head’ of the figure clear in the image but a cassock which the saviour was thought to wear appears to flow down to the ground below.
Others said the ‘head’ even appeared to be adorned with a crown of thorns associated with the Crucifixion of Jesus.
