Very interesting Observation there @MikeGrouchy. As I understand it the statue of liberty has an acutely masonic significance, being that it was
finished with the laying of a cornerstone in proper masonic ceremony and crafted by brother of the order Frederich Auguste Bartholdi himself.
Perhaps speculation, though I'm very confident that it is not far from the truth, the bearing of a torch in one hand is a gesture not unfamiliar to
the luciferian doctrine of light bearing and illumination, the book I'm not quite sure, perhaps a generic icon of justice, and the crown of rays a
symbol of sunbeams in homage to sun worship of pagandom.

Edit: it appears someone beat me to my own post! Oh well, the more sources the merrier.
I think it is also interesting to note than one of the worlds greatest architectural feats, now scattered remains and ruins of a massive collosus,
known as the Collosus of Rhodes existed that beared a striking similarity both to the topographical choice of location and the general detail of the
statue of liberty, both constructs bearing similar torches over the sea.
For your consideration.
