The Statue of Liberty 125th Anniversary

HI, GUYS!,

Today is a very special for those of us who are "in love with" the STATUE OF LIBERTY, one of the best symbol of Freedom, Democracy, Hope and international Friendship



This famous sculpture celebrates 125th anniversary since it was a French gift for Americans in 1886. Besides, to commemorate this event, 125 immigrants from many different countries have become American citizens in honor to the statue's symbol of Hope.

  1. The statue is made of Bronze, but long exposure to the elements has resulted in the weathered, greenish-gray appearance it now has. The statue was finished in 1883 and on July 4, 1884 was presented as a gift to the united states. The statue was brought to Bedloe's Island in June of 1885, and assembled in 1886, and public unveiling was held on Oct 28, 1886.
