Image Description: The beautiful robed lady of freedom, the Statue of Liberty, has become known as a symbol of freedom and hope for immigrants. The Statue of Liberty stands 93 meters tall from the bottom of the base to the top of her head, and she is represents Libertas, the Roman goddess of freedom. In her hand, she holds a torch and a tabula ansata, on which is written July 4th, 1776 - the date of the signing of the American Declaration of Independence. She was a gift from the people of France and was constructed there and shipped to the US in crates to be assembled on top of a pedestal that was built on Liberty Island. In the beginning, the statue was a drab copper color but, in 1900, a green patina formed that oxidized the copper of her skin, turning the statue completely green by 1906.
