The Statue of Liberty is one of the most (if not THE most) famous monuments in the world. Anyone visiting New York City can see her, but not everyone knows that Lady Liberty has her own secrets. One of them is – she might not even be a lady at all!
Or do you know, for example, that number seven meant a lot for the Statue’s creators? It’s easy to notice the Statue has seven spikes on its crown, symbolizing universal liberty across the seven oceans and continents. But there are less obvious references to the number seven. Btw, you can see this monument not in NYC only!

– It’s really hard to picture it, but the Statue actually arrived from France on June 17, 1885, in over 300 copper pieces. The precious cargo was traveling in 214 crates on the French ship, Isère.
– Then, American newspaper magnate Joseph Pulitzer stepped in. Even though 80% of the donations were small ones from middle-class citizens, Pulitzer managed to collect the necessary amount from over 120,000 donors.
– The Statue of Liberty is made of copper, so it was originally about the same color as a penny. According to the New York Historical Society, it turned completely green because of oxidation by 1920.
– The statue was originaly supposed to serve as a lighthouse for ships sailing into New York Harbor. And, two years after it arrived in the US, it actually became one.
– There are 16 leaves around the torch, and the monument itself is 151 feet tall. The sum of both those digits is seven as well. Clearly, that number meant a lot for the Statue’s creators.
– Famous engineer Alexander Gustave Eiffel helped design the steel internal framework to keep the statue stable. It’s strong enough to withstand around 600 bolts of lightning a year.
– Most people are positive it’s a representation of the Roman goddess of freedom, Libertas. The widely accepted story is that Bartholdi modeled her face after his mother.
– Author and journalist, Elizabeth Mitchell, however, claims that the sculptor actually used his brother’s face as a model!
– Another theory was presented by French writer Nathalie Salmon, who claims Lady Liberty was modeled after her ancestor Sarah Salmon.
– You can find a smaller Statue of Liberty, which was the original model for its big sister, in the Jardin du Luxembourg in Paris. It’s been there since 1906, after Bartholdi gave it to the Luxembourg museum for the World’s Fair of 1900.
New York is one of the world’s greatest, and most vibrant cities. It is a bustling 24-hour metropolis, renowned for its concrete canyons and towers of chrome and glass. The Big Apple has many internationally-recognized features, including a symbol of the aspirations, hopes, and pride of America – The Statue of Liberty.
From its origins, to what has been done with some of its parts, join me as I reveal to you some of the most surprising facts about the Statue of Liberty.
12. It Wasn’t American In Construction
When people think of the Statue of Liberty, they immediately think of what it meant to immigrants who came to the country in the early 1900’s. And in modern times, it’s recognized as one of the most important monuments in US history.
What many people forget was that this statue was not made by an American, period. Instead, it was made by a Frenchman, two in fact depending on how you look at it. First was French sculptor Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi and its metal framework was built by Gustave Eiffel. Yes, of the Eiffel Tower fame.
11. The “Common Name” Is A Nickname
If I were to say to you, “Statue of Liberty”, you would know exactly what I meant. You would picture the iconic statue, maybe even do the pose that Lady Liberty is doing. But what a lot of people don’t know…is that “The Statue Of Liberty” is a nickname for the statue given to it by the mainstream media. No, for real.
When the French constructed it and christened it on Liberty Island, they had a very long and poetic name for the statue, “Liberty Enlightening The World”.
10. There Is More Than One
Usually, when it comes to a major monument, there is just one of them. The White House, the Eiffel Tower, the Great Wall of China, Stonehenge, that kind of thing.
Others can be found in Las Vegas, Norway, Denmark, and even Rio De Janiero in Brazil!
9. The Statue and the Island Used To House People
When it comes to the monuments of the world, there are people who are “ordained” to take care of it over the long term and make sure that people don’t tag or violate the monuments. It’s often a thankless job because we don’t think about it that often. But now that we’re talking about it…who does take care of the Statue of Liberty?
That would be the superintendent of the site, and what’s more, those who are deemed the superintendent get a special honor. They get to actually live on Liberty Island.
8. You Were Once Able To Climb Up The Torch
If I was to ask you what the highest point of the Statue of Liberty was, you’d easily say, “The Torch”. After all, that’s the part of the statue that is the highest raised into the air via Liberty’s arm. Today, you can only go as high as the crown section of the statue. But once upon a time, you were able to go up the arm and climb to the very top of the torch.
7. It’s a Climb To The Top
You’d think that in the modern era that we live in that someone would’ve installed an elevator in the Statue of Liberty, but nope! That would require a lot of work on the structure and beyond. So because of that, if you wish to get to the crown of the statue and observe the view from on high…you need to climb stairs. And not just a few, 354 of them. I hope you all are in good shape!
6. The Spikes Are A “Halo”
There are many elements to the Statue of Liberty that make it such a visually striking statue. There’s Lady Liberty herself wrapped in a robe, the torch symbolizing a beacon of hope, the book she holds that is inscribed with the Declaration of Independence signing date and more. But with the crown, there are seven spikes that come off of it, and many think that it’s just an “extension” of the crown.
5. It Was A Lighthouse
While the torch that Lady Liberty holds is seen as a symbol of the “light of hope” or being a “beacon of light for all to see”, if you look at it close enough you’ll notice that the torch truly looks like it can be lightened up.
It wasn’t because of cost ironically enough, but rather, the light from the torch was too dim to see at sea. Which for a lighthouse is a bad thing. So, President Theodore Roosevelt ordered the torch be shut down so more proper lighthouses in the area could be built.
4. It Didn’t Start Out Green
When the Statue of Liberty was constructed on Liberty Island, it wasn’t green as you see it now. It was copper, which is appropriate because that’s what it’s made of mostly. So when it was unveiled, it looked like a very bright penny. Which begs the question, how did it go from bright brown…to green? The answer is time. Because over time, certain metals get a different “shade” to them known as patina. And for copper, it goes from brown to green.
3. The Statue Almost Had a “Sister” In Egypt
2. There Was A Real Lady Liberty
When it comes to art, especially sculptures featuring human beings, a question that is often asked is, “Who was this modeled after?” Sometimes it’s a famous person, like the statue of David, and other times it’s a mystery, like Mona Lisa.
1. Parts Of It Were Used To Make A Motorcycle
No, I’m not kidding you, and it was actually a really big deal when it happened..
#TheStatueofLiberty (#LibertyEnlighteningtheWorld; French: La Liberté éclairant le monde) is a colossal neoclassical sculpture on #LibertyIsland in New York Harbor in New York City, in the United States.
The statue’s foundation and pedestal were aligned so that it would face southeast, greeting ships entering the harbor from the Atlantic Ocean.
The statue became an icon of freedom and of the United States, and was a welcoming sight to immigrants arriving from abroad.
The statue was administered by the United States Lighthouse Board until 1901 and then by the Department of War; since 1933 it has been maintained by the National Park Service. Public access to the balcony around the torch has been barred for safety since 1916.
This #copperstatue was a gift from the people of France to the people of the United States in 1886. The statue was built in France, shipped overseas in crates, and assembled on the completed pedestal on what was then called Bedloe’s Island.
The Statue of Liberty is a figure of a robed woman representing #Libertas, the goddess of freedom widely worshipped in ancient Rome, especially among emancipated slaves.
Known as the “Father of the Statue of Liberty, According to the National Park Service, the idea for the Statue of Liberty was first proposed by #ÉdouardRenédeLaboulaye, president of the French Anti-Slavery Society and a prominent and important political thinker of his time.
It was designed by French sculptor Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi and built by #GustaveEiffel, the man who is best known for the world-famous Eiffel Tower
Bartholdi (the sculptor) completed the head and the torch-bearing arm before the statue was fully designed, and these pieces were exhibited for publicity at international expositions.
The torch-bearing arm was displayed at the Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia in 1876, and in Madison Square Park in Manhattan from 1876 to 1882.
#TheLadyLiberty holds a torch above her head with her right hand, and in her left hand carries a tabula ansata inscribed in Roman numerals with “JULY IV MDCCLXXVI” (July 4, 1776), the date of the U.S. Declaration of Independence. A broken chain lies at her feet as she walks forward.
The Height of Copper Statue (to torch): 151 feet 1 inch (46 meters) and from ground level to torch: 305 feet 1 inch (93 meters)
Originally, the statue was a dull copper color, but shortly after 1900 a green patina, also called verdigris, caused by the oxidation of the copper skin, began to spread.
The torch, found to have been leaking water since the 1916 alterations, was replaced with an exact replica of Bartholdi’s unaltered torch. The original torch was removed and replaced in 1986 with the current one, whose flame is covered in 24-karat gold. The torch reflects the sun’s rays in daytime and is lighted by floodlights at night.
It was designated as a National Monument in 1924. Employees of the National Park Service have been caring for the colossal copper statue since 1933.
According to popular accounts, the face was modeled after that of Charlotte Beysser Bartholdi, the sculptor’s mother, but Regis Huber, the curator of the Bartholdi Museum is on record as saying that this, as well as other similar speculations, have no basis in fact.
In 1984, the Statue of Liberty was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The UNESCO “Statement of Significance” describes the statue as a “masterpiece of the human spirit” that “endures as a highly potent symbol—inspiring contemplation, debate and protest—of ideals such as liberty, peace, human rights, abolition of slavery, democracy and opportunity.”
