Liberty Enlightening the World

Statue of Liberty

Lady Liberty is thought to have been hit by around 600 bolts of lightning every year since she was built.

The enduring symbol of freedom

The Statue of Liberty (Liberty Enlightening the World; French: La Liberté éclairant le monde) is a colossal neoclassical sculpture on Liberty Island in New York Harbor in New York, in the United States.

The copper statue, a gift from the people of France to the people of the United States, was designed by French sculptor Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi and its metal framework was built by Gustave Eiffel. The statue was dedicated on October 28, 1886.

The Statue of Liberty is a figure of Libertas, a robed Roman liberty goddess. She holds a torch above her head with her right hand, and in her left hand carries a tabula ansata inscribed in Roman numerals with “JULY IV MDCCLXXVI” (July 4, 1776), the date of the U.S. Declaration of Independence.

A broken chain lies at her feet as she walks forward. The statue became an icon of freedom and of the United States, and a national park tourism destination.

It is a welcoming sight to immigrants arriving from abroad.
