Lady Liberty’s torch may shine brightly over New York City, yet it still represents a symbol known across the entire world. Since 1886, this colossal neoclassic sculpture has stood tall as an iconic national monument of freedom.
Not to mention, welcoming for immigrants traveling abroad to America for the first time.
Yet, this gift from the people of France was no easy task to craft. Aside from an impressive high of 305 feet (22-stories), the base foundation alone weights 54 million pounds! The statue itself is a respectable 225 tons or 450,000 pounds.
To cover it all up, 300 copper sheets were laid, each hammered into individual shapes before finally being riveted together. Now, while it might not look like the true color of copper today with a green tone, it’s all due in part to weathering and age. They say a little ketchup would bring it back to new.
However, when it comes to tattoos of the Statue Of Liberty, what is the meaning behind them? Well, aside from freedom of course, the statue itself was a gift and an act of friendship. Plus, this robed female is also a symbol of Libertas, the roman Goddess.
Though, if you take an even closer look, you’ll find the American Declaration of Independence inscribed on the tablet. For men who practice law or have strong rooted beliefs in liberty, it has quite the powerful meaning. Not to mention, there’s also a broken chain which rests at the bottom of her feet too.
For some men, this design also serves popular reminder of their New York hometown.
