Statue of Liberty


face

Built in 1883 by Frederic Auguste Bartholdi, it is said that he used his mother as the model for her face. The design was based on the Roman goddess of Liberty and has become one of the most iconic landmarks in the United States.

It was transported in pieces, assembled and unveiled between 1883 and 1886.

In 1984 the torch was repaired and plated with 24 carat gold.

We have compiled 11 pictures that show the process in the 1800s and 1980s that are ready for your classroom use.
