This place is at the beginning of Copa, near the Forte de Copacabana... It's a nice spot for pictures since you can see all of Copa + the Sugarloaf in the background

Don't know what to say especially about this stature. How is it possible to make review just about a simple stature? Anyway you'll come across this while strolling along Copacabana. That's it. Nothing more. Nothing less. Just a simple stature.

His sculputure can be found between Posto 5 and Posto 6. Posto is a little numbered construction at the beach, built to house life guards, emergency telephone and rest rooms.

Another statue on the beach, on of teo very close to the gort at the end of Copacabana beach. Like the others it is fun to take a picture with them - an interactive monument!

To see Copacabana beach in the background where the statue of Carlos Drummont de Andrade is located is really a great thing. I have several pictures with his statue and all of them came out great. It is definitely a great picture spot.
