About

Officially called "Liberty Enlightening the World", the Statue of Liberty was a gift to the United States from France to represent the friendship forged between the two countries during the American Revolution. It was designed and sculpted by Frédéric Bartholdi, and was dedicated on October 28, 1886, in commemoration of the centennial of the signing of the United States Declaration of Independence. Now residing in the Hudson River, the statue stands as a sentinel to visitors and immigrants coming into the New York Harbor.

Believed to be inspired by Bartholdi's mother, the statue is of a robed woman holding a torch in her right hand and a tablet in her left. It is made of pure copper with a steel framework. The torch flame is coated in gold leaf. She stands 151 feet tall, atop a pedestal that is 154 feet tall. Lady Liberty wears a crown has seven spikes, believed to represent the Seven Seas and seven continents. Visitors to the statue can climb the 354 stairs inside the pedestal and statue to look out any of the 25 windows in the crown.
