The copper lady dressed in robes that stands at the entrance to New York harbor is one of the largest statues ever built. Her full name is Liberty Enlightening the World, but she is better known as the Statue of Liberty, or simply Lady Liberty. The imposing statue was a gift from the people of France, designed by French sculptor Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi, and built by Gustave Eiffel. Lady Liberty was dedicated on October 28, 1886.
