The Statue of Liberty is a colossal neoclassical sculpture on Liberty Island in the middle of New York Harbor, in Manhattan, New York City. The statue, designed by Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi and dedicated on October 28, 1886, was a gift to the United States from the people of France. The statue is an icon of freedom and of the United States: a welcoming signal to immigrants arriving from abroad. The statue stands on a stone pedestal, designed by American architect Richard Morris Hunt. Source: Wikipedia, Statue of Liberty.

Alexandre Gustave Eiffel relied on Geometry to build the internal structure of the Statue of Liberty.
