Art: BLACK CAT 4TH OF JULY STATUE OF LIBERTY by Artist Cyra R. Cancel
MY BLACK CAT WENT TO NEW YORK THIS YEAR AS WELL...TO CELEBRATE 4TH OF JULY, AND SEE THE STATUE OF LIBERTY. ADDED A DELICATE GLITTER AROUND THE FIREWORKS, AND STATUE THAT YOU CAN'T SEE IN THE PICTURE. WOW!!!! I CAN SEE HER CLOSER FROM HERE!!! PRETTY FIREWORKS! Liberty Enlightening the World (French: La liberté éclairant le monde), known more commonly as the Statue of Liberty (Statue de la Liberté), is a large statue that was presented to the United States by France in 1886. It stands at Liberty Island, in New York Harbor as a welcome to all visitors, immigrants, and returning Americans. The copper patina-clad statue, dedicated on October 28, 1886, commemorates the centennial of the United States and is a gesture of friendship from France to America. Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi sculpted the statue and obtained a U.S. patent useful for raising construction funds through the sale of miniatures. Alexandre Gustave Eiffel (designer of the Eiffel Tower) engineered the internal structure. Eugène Viollet-le-Duc was responsible for the choice of copper in the statue's construction and adoption of the repoussé technique. The statue is of a female figure walking upright, dressed in a robe and a seven point spiked rays representing a nimbus (halo), holding a stone tablet close to her body in her left hand and a flaming torch high in her right hand. The tablet bears the words "JULY IV MDCCLXXVI" (July 4, 1776), commemorating the date of the United States Declaration of Independence.
