HEY I BET YOU DIDN'T KNOW THE STATUE OF LIBERTY WAS DECIDED TO BE BUILT OVER A FRENCH DINNER PARTY. THEY GAVE IT TO THE AMERICANS BECAUSE OF A QUEST OF DEMOCRACY. Democracy is a government formed by the country. the americans became a free country by having a government, Instead of a king and a queen. Now back to the statue of liberty was designed by gustav effel. Whos built the effeltower later. But was built by frederic bartholdi.
About the Bartholdi guy. He modeled lady liberty's face to look like his mother's. And the body was modeled after a prostitute (you might not want to know what a prostitute means Floors opinon ) ( "agreed" marylins opinion). But if you can stand bad words search prostitute on wikipedia.
Lady liberty's secrets
Lady Liberty still inspires many things and people today! Some people made things like chess or checkers. Some are weird art like restaurant art. ( Resturant art is in the left picture.) Some just bobble heads that do nothing very important. It is also used as advertisements for shops or other things. It's used for those purses basically because it presents justice so people will know that in that restaurant/shop everybody is treated equally!! P.S.: that's another reason why it's art and not engineering!
The Statue of Liberty's torch represents a way to light the way for people who need justice( african -americans, asians,fat people,etc........) The chains around her feet stand for the colonies America escaped from. The book stands for peace justice and liberty. The book says 4th of july 1776, it is written originally in roman numerals by Emma Lazarus. The Statue of Liberty was brought to New York bay on a ship called "Isere" in 350 pieces. Thats why there is so many cracks in it. If you look in the picture above you'll see cracks in the hair and a line on the arm. Some people say that the statue of Liberty is the bridge between art and engenering. Personaly I think that it is more art than engeering. (Marilyn's opinion.) And I think that it has nothing to do with engineering (Floor's opinion.) If you look at the crown you'll see that the black parts are windows. There are 25 windows in it's crown .Extremely large windows. What a wonder full view. Or scary if your afraid of heights.
