"Located on Liberty Island, the..." Statue of Liberty - Ellis Island Tip by AndreasK


Located on Liberty Island, the <b>Statue of Liberty</b> is the work of the French sculptor Bartholdi with the help of Gustave Eiffel. The Statue was exhibited in separate parts. First the right arm and the torch were shown at the Philadelphia Exhibition in 1876, then the face and the body at the Universal Exhibition in Paris in 1878. In October 1886 the statue was officially inaugurated. The left hand holds the Declaration of Independence, with the historical date of the 4 July 1776, and in the right hand a golden torch.
