Statue of Liberty

Statue of Liberty (Picture 1)

The Statue of Liberty, also known as Liberty Illuminating the World, was a 100th anniversary gift from France to the United States in 1876. The Statue of Liberty in the United States is located near the Hudson Estuary in New York City, New York, USA, and is an important tourist attraction on the Liberty Island in which the statue is located. The Statue of Liberty in the United States is based on the Statue of Liberty in Luxembourg Park, Paris, France. The famous French sculptor Bartholdi completed the sculptural work of the statue over 10 years. The appearance design of the goddess was derived from the sculptor's mother, and the goddess held up the right hand of the torch Based on the arms of the sculptor's wife. The Statue of Liberty is dressed in ancient Greek-style clothing with crowns that symbolize the seven spires of the seven continents and four oceans of the world.

Bartholdi was inspired by French law professor and politician Laboulaye, who was said to have commented in 1865 that any monument to the independence of the United States was a joint plan of the French and American peoples. Due to the post-war instability in France, construction of the statue did not begin until the early 1870s. In 1875, Laboulaye proposed that France fund the statue, while the United States provided the statue and built the base. Before the statue was fully designed, Bartholdi completed the head and torch arms, which were promoted at international fairs.

The statue project began in 1874. When Bartholdi participated in the 100th Anniversary Exposition in Philadelphia in 1876, in order to attract public attention, the hand of the torch held by the Statue of Liberty was displayed at the expo, which caused a sensation. The index finger in front of people is 2.44 meters long and more than 1 meter in diameter. It is a rare art treasure. As a result, this little-known sculpture a few days ago was worth a hundredfold and became an American art treasure. Soon, the U.S. Congress passed a resolution formally approving the president's request to accept the statue, while identifying Bedro Island as the site for the statue. The Statue of Liberty was completely completed in 1884, which lasted for ten years. On July 6, the Statue of Liberty was officially announced as a gift to the United States.

The Statue of Liberty is a statue of the robbed Roman Libertas. She held the torch overhead with her right hand and entitled "JULY IV MDCCLXXVI" with Roman numerals in her left hand (July 4, 1776), the date of the American Declaration of Independence. As she walked forward, she had a broken sha lock and chain hanging on her feet in honor of the recent abolition of slavery across the country. The statue became a symbol of freedom and the United States, and became a tourist attraction in the national park. For more than a century, the bronze statue of the Statue of Liberty that has stood on the island of Liberty has become a symbol of friendship between the American nation and the American and French people, and has always expressed the lofty ideals of the American people for democracy and longing for freedom. Passengers entering New York Harbor can see the standing Statue of Liberty holding up the torch of freedom. For thousands of immigrants to the United States, the Statue of Liberty is a guarantee of freedom from poverty and oppression in the old world, and the Statue of Liberty has become a symbol of the United States.
