Statue of Liberty
"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, designed by Frédéric Bartholdi and dedicated
on October 28, 1886. The statue, a gift to the United States from the people of France, is of a robed female figure representing Libertas, the Roman goddess
of freedom, who bears a torch and a tabula ansata (a tablet evoking the law) upon which
is inscribed the date of the American Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776.
A broken chain lies at her feet.
The statue has become an icon of
freedom and of the United States."
It was a great moment to stand
in front of her!
