Sculp­ture New York City

Face lift

Liberty enlight­en­ing the world; the statue designed by the sculp­tor Auguste Bartholdi and orig­i­nally built by Gus­tave Eif­fel has become a sym­bol of free­dom and eman­ci­pa­tion from oppres­sion. Alain Godon’s sculp­ture in a pati­nated bronze mea­sur­ing 46cm wide, 40cm deep and 57cm high and weigh­ing 22 kilos gives it a “face lift”.
