Describe the artifact
in detail. For
instance, how would you describe it to
someone who could not see it?
My chosen artifact is the Statue of
Liberty located in the New York Harbor
on Liberty Island. The Statue of Liberty
is green, and she is holding a book in
one hand and holds a torch up in the air.
The total height of the statue from her
heel to the top of her head is 111 feet, 6
inches. The statue waistline is 35 feet.
The Statue of Liberty weight is 450,000
pounds. During the restoration of the
Statue of Liberty that was completed in
1986, the torch was carefully covered in
24k gold. One the Crown there are
seven continents, each of them
measuring up to 9 feet in length and
weighing as much as 150 pounds. In the
statue's left hand there is a tablet that
has the date July 4, 1776. The size of her
table is 23' 7" tall and 13' 7" wide.
Chains at the feet of the statue lie
broken shackles of oppression and
tyranny. There are 154 steps from the
pedestal to the head of the Statue of
Liberty. The exterior copper covering
the statue is 3/32 of an inch thick. It is
less than the thickness of two pennies.
The Statue of Liberty color is called
patina and is the result of natural
weathering of the copper. Invalid source
specified. The parts of the artifact that
are most important to me are the chains
because they mean that we are free
from France and now we can create our
country. The second part is the torch
because though everything you are now
