Celebrating the Statue of Liberty!

Nearly 130 years ago, France gifted the U.S. with one of the most prolific symbols of freedom the world over.

Since then, the Statue of Liberty has welcomed millions of people searching for a new life on unfamiliar shores.

Today, the Statue of Liberty is more than just a symbol of solidarity. It’s a reminder that all countries thrive on the exchange of ideas and culture. The National Park Service’s dedication to maintaining and restoring the statue ensures that message will live on.

Though the Statue of Liberty was actually shipped in separate 350 pieces packed into 200 cases and then assembled upon delivery, artists at Google have drawn a more playful take on the occasion by portraying Lady Liberty crossing the Atlantic fully constructed on a steamer much too small for her.

According to the National Park Service, Lady Liberty arrived to “great fanfare” and was even greeted by then-President Grover Cleveland. Although, despite the “fanfare,” the pedestal wasn’t yet completed and the parts of the statue that were shipped over had to remain on Liberty Island, then Bedloe’s Island, until the stage was completed and she could be displayed.
