A Little Lady Liberty

June 14, 2021

A younger “little sister” of the Statue of Liberty is currently en route from France to the United States, making the sea journey 136 years following Lady Liberty’s voyage in 1885. Cast in bronze from a plaster mold used in the process of the Statue of Liberty’s construction, this little statue, not quite ten feet tall, will arrive at Ellis Island in New York Harbor in time for Independence Day celebrations. She will then travel to the gardens of the French Embassy in Washington D.C. to join in France’s Bastille Day celebrations. The statue will remain in Washington D.C. for a decade-long visit before returning to France.
