New York's Wonder of the World.
The Statue of Liberty, designed by sculptor Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi, was given by the French government to the United States as a token of friendship between the two countries and dedicated by President Grover Cleveland on October 28, 1886. In the 1870s, Bartholdi began making small-scale replicas to help pay for the real one. By the time of official dedication, New York was flooded with cheap, illegal knock-offs, and even today most models are manufactured in China.
This extraordinary piece is proudly crafted in a New York City workshop. The 15-inch tall scaled replica of the Statue of Liberty, approved by the Statue of Liberty/Ellis Island Foundation for the statue's 125th Anniversary, is meticulously sculpted and cast in bonded marble with a hand painted patina. In a process similar to casting bronze, a mold is created and cast with a cold mixture of marble dust and catalyzed resin which produces a dense, rock-hard material that is superior to natural marble for durability.
