Statue of Liberty

June 8, 2010

A metallic bookmark from the Statue of Liberty in Liberty Island, New York City, USA:

The Statue of Liberty commemorates the aliance between France and the United States during the American Revolution (1775-1783). It was designed by French sculptor Frédéric-Auguste Bartholdi and completed in July 1884. The French people donated the money for the statue. The United States built the pedestal with funds raised by newspaper publisher Joseph Pulitzer. The statue was first exhibited in Paris, then dismantled and shipped to New York, and reassembled at its present location. At 151 feet in height, she is one of the largest statues in the world and is recognized worldwide. She is a universal symbol of freedom, democracy, and diplomacy.
