Artist's Description

If you have ever visited the Statue of Liberty in person, you already know she’s an imposing figure, but consider the following fun facts:

Official dedication ceremonies held on Thursday, October 28, 1886
Total overall height from the base of the pedestal foundation to the tip of the torch is 305 feet, 6 inches

Height of the Statue from her heel to the top of her head is 111 feet, 6 inches
The face on the Statue of Liberty measures more than 8 feet tall

There are 154 steps from the pedestal to the head of the Statue of Liberty
A tablet held in her left hand measures 23’ 7" tall and 13’ 7" wide inscribed with the date JULY IV MDCCLXXVI (July 4, 1776)

The Statue has a 35-foot waistline
There are seven rays on her crown, one for each of the seven continents, each measuring up to 9 feet in length and weighing as much as 150 pounds
Total weight of the Statue of Liberty is 225 tons (or 450,000 pounds)
At the feet of the Statue lie broken shackles of oppression and tyranny
During the restoration completed in 1986, the new torch was carefully covered with thin sheets of 24k gold

The exterior copper covering of the Statue of Liberty is 3/32 of an inch thick (less than the thickness of two pennies) and the light green color (called a patina) is the result of natural weathering of the copper
