The statue of Liberty is a NY city Landmark that is recognized the world over. It was originally made in France and was a gift of the French people to the people of the United States. Bartholdi was the artist along with a huge studio of people. The job of making it was enormous. The job of transporting this huge statue was quite the undertaking. The work was done through the 1870s and 1880s.
The head portion alone of the Statue of Liberty when it was displayed at the Paris Exposition of 1878 was large enough to hold 40 people. The workshop of Bartholdi had over 300,000 visitors over the course of work on the Statue.
