The Statue of Liberty stands on Ellis Island, New York, USA.
The statue was designed by Frederic Bartholdi and completed in 1876.
The Statue of Liberty is a colossal neoclassical sculpture on Liberty
Island in the middle of New York Harbor, in Manhattan, New York City.
The statue, designed by Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi and
dedicated on October 28, 1886, was a gift to the United States from
the people of France. The statue is of a robed female figure representing
Libertas, the Roman goddess of freedom, who bears a torch and a tabula
ansata (a tablet evoking the law) upon which is inscribed the date of
the American Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776. A broken chain
lies at her feet. The statue is an icon of freedom and of the United
States: a welcoming signal to immigrants arriving from abroad.
