Wonders of the World


Statue of Liberty, New York, USA

A symbol of freedom and a beacon of hope, the colossal torch-bearing figure that looms over New York Harbor is one of the world's most recognized statues. The copper structure was designed by sculptor Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi and built by Gustave Eiffel as a gift to the United States from the people of France in 1886. Representing the Roman goddess Libertas, she holds a torch and a tablet inscribed with the date of the American Declaration of Independence. At over 305-feet tall (93m), the Statue of Liberty is a striking feature of Manhattan's skyline. Discover more of America's most important landmarks here.
