Statue of Liberty

Skyscrapers of the Manhattan borough of New York

Can you spot the statue of liberty?




I was indeed amazed to be able to appreciate the nice replica of the statue at Shenzhen.







The Statue of Liberty, officially titled Liberty Enlightening the World, dedicated on October 28, 1886, is a monument commemorating the centennial of the signing of the United States Declaration of Independence, given to the United States by the people of France to represent the friendship between the two countries established during the American Revolution. It represents a woman wearing a stola, a radiant crown and sandals, trampling a broken chain, carrying a torch in her raised right hand and a tabula ansata, where the date of the Declaration of Independence JULY IV MDCCLXXVI is inscribed, in her left arm. Standing on Liberty Island in New York Harbor, it welcomes visitors, immigrants, and returning Americans traveling by ship.

  37. I’d love to see this State of Liberty. I already saw the one in France and the one in New York – I hope I can see yours someday. When I researched the history of the statue when I was writing my post last July I was surprised that so many people in the US did not know that it was a gift from the people of France. Thanks for mentioning it.
