Statue of Liberty Enlightening the World

 

This epic and world famous sculpture, designed by Frederic-Auguste Bartholdi, was a gift of friendship from the people of France to the United States as a universal symbol of freedom and democracy. It has been said that the face was modeled after the sculpture’s mother and the design is reminiscent of Libertas, the Roman Goddess of Freedom. This must see statue is an icon of the United States.

Within this monument there are bronze parapets that have the names of the men, women and children who lost their lives in the attacks. The Museum will open in Spring 2014 and will house exhibitions containing artifacts, pictures, videos and accounts from people around the USA and the world.  At the nearby 9/11 Tribute Centre volunteer guides share their own stories of how they were personally touched by this tragedy.
