he Statue of Liberty’s original torch, which has been housed in the base of the statue since a replica replaced it in 1984 (inset), was moved across Liberty Island to its new home in a museum that will open next year. The base and the detached flame of the 3,600-pound torch, as well as a replica of Lady Liberty’s face, were trucked slowly and carefully to the museum construction site about 100 yards from the statue. Officials with the National Park Service and the Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation said the torch was removed in 1984 because it was too badly damaged to restore.

#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.”
