2 1. Having read the articles presented in this module, reflect on how their discussion of intent and the changes to it affect your interpretation or understanding of the Statue of Liberty. After reading the book “The Statue of Liberty: A Transatlantic Story” also the Emma Lazarus’s “The New Colossus” poem, I have gained a better understanding of the Statue of Liberty and those who created and idolized it. In my opinion Fredric-Auguste Bartholdi ‘The sculptor’, is perhaps one of the most persistent creators during late 1800s. Bartholdi was heavily set on bringing his creation of the statue of liberty from paper, to sculpture, and finally to larger than life size artifact that would speak volumes more than just its size or outwardly appearances. My thoughts on Bartholdi’s intent to design the Statue of Liberty was not just to amplify the appreciation for the United States and gift, but to also praise what liberty actually stands for with details that cultivate liberty enlightenment throughout the world. Internationals will arrive to New York as immigrants to fairy past the Statue of Liberty
