The Statue of Liberty is a colossal sculpture on Liberty Island in the middle of New York Harbor, in Manhattan, New York City.
The statue was a gift to the United States from the people of France. It represents 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 is an icon of freedom and of the United States: a welcoming signal to immigrants arriving from abroad.
Below is an alternative look at the Statue of Liberty, “during Summer”. Either way, if you’ve never seen the statue, make sure you do.
