A sculpture by British artist Antony Gormely installed atop a building is back-dropped by the skyline of downtown Sao Paulo, Brazil, Friday, May 11, 2012. Brazilian media are calling Gormely's sculptures "suicide statues." Firefighters have been called to the scene this week by concerned citizens who mistook Gormley's life-size body cast sculptures perched at the edges of tall buildings as despondent people ready to jump.
