I like to contribute to ATS and not just sit on a high horse of thinking myself as a better man like a few do.. I found an interesting post about the statue of liberty and its early making, these are pictures of its early making..

The Statue of Liberty took 15 years to complete, from 1870 to 1885. The statue was built in Paris, in an atelier in the 17th Arrondissement to ensure its solidity and durability. Its 46 meters, or 150 feet. For each section, a wooden skeleton was covered with plaster and copper sheets were hand-hammered on it to contour the statue’s outermost layer. Dismantled into 350 pieces, it was rebuilt over four months and inaugurated on Oct. 28, 1886, with a parade on Broadway.

Thank you for reading!

Great thread and photos!

Did you know the Statue of Liberty was originally supposed to go to Egypt? But the US propaganda machine likes to "adjust" the story for its benefit
