This statue was erected in 2014 on the 20th anniversary of Tom Jobim’s death at the age of 67 in New York. We encountered it on a walk along Ipanema Beach. It is just a statue. Not worth going out of your way to see.

If you're going to Ipanema, you might as well get a picture with the guy who wrote "Girl from Ipanema." It's close to the beach, so there it's easy to get to. If you don't make it though, don't worry. You're not missing too much.

This statue is from the great composer Jobim known for his son "Girl from Ipanema" . The statue lays in the last part of the Aproador beach, a nice place to see the sunset.

This is one of three bronze monuments located in close proximity to each other near tge Fort at Copacabana Beach. This one is on the Ipanema side and like the others makes for a fun photograph.

Ipanema is considered Rio's crown jewel. It offers the
best view of the sunset from Arpoador and is
inspiration for the legendary song, “The Girl from
Ipanema.” Ipanema is an upscale area, home to many
high-end restaurants and luxury shops, many of which
can be found on the charming Garcia d'Ávila Avenue.
The neighbourhood is very rich culturally, housing
many art galleries that show contemporary art. There
