statue of liberty

The Statue of Liberty is a symbol of freedom. It was gifted to America in 1886 by France. It is also a symbol of friendship between America and France. Originally the statue of Statue of Liberty is made of copper. It is located on Liberty Island in New York City in the US. There is a magnificent garden around this statue.

While the United States was celebrating its century of independence, representatives of its friendly country offered the Statue of Liberty as a gift. It was a symbolic symbol of freedom. But it is said that America did not fully say yes to take it. At that time it was expected to cost about one lakh dollars. France was going to make it and give it to America. It was made by the French sculptor Friedrich August Bartholdi. The work of making it was started, but it had to be stopped in the middle. Then its construction remained closed for a long time.

For a long time, the remains of this idol remained in u. Some portions were kept in fairs and exhibitions to be held here.

But after that Joseph Pulitzer, publisher of a magazine New York World, took a new initiative to complete this incomplete construction. He established a public fund. Any person could deposit money in this fund. In this, several millions of dollars were deposited in a few days. After this the construction work started. At that time, about two and a half million dollars was spent in its construction. The Statue was brought into the ship with 214 boxes sealed in its parts.

In the US it was established on an island called Bedlodge. It was later renamed Liberty Island. The Statue of Liberty is a statue of a clothed woman. This woman represents the Roman goddess Libertas. It is holding a torch in one hand and a book in the other.
