  Obelisco de São Paulo
by MM212

Also referred to as Obelisco do Ibirapuera, this 72-metre marble obelisk was inaugurated in 1955 in honour of the martyrs of the 1932 Constitutional Revolution. Work on the actual obelisk was begun in 1947, but was not completed until 1970, well after the inauguration. The design is attributed to Galileo Ugo Emendabili, and Italo-Brazilian sculptor. The obelisk is located just outside Parque do Ibirapuera.
