Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi (1834-1904)

Nah, postingan ini muncul juga karena sebuah film lama yang baru semalam saya tonton lagi (bagus sih filmnya) hahaa yaitu National Treasure 2 Book of Secrets.
Di dalam film tersebut menceritakan tentang pencarian kota emas (the city of gold) yang prosesnya harus melalui teka-teki yang tidak mudah untuk dipecahkan dan salah satu petunjuk jawaban dari teka-teki tersebut ada di salah satu patung Liberty, akhirnya saya coba cari tahu siapa inventor dari Liberty Statue ini dan Om Google bilang Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi lah sang inventor atas patung Liberty ini.
Bagi para sahabat yang ingin tahu tentang sejarah patung Liberty ini bisa langsung baca aja yah :)

The Statue of Liberty arrived in New York Harbor on June 19, 1885. The monument was a gift of friendship from the people of France to the people of the United States, intended to commemorate the centennial of the American Declaration of Independence, some ten years earlier. Sculptor Frederic Auguste Bartholdi's Statue of Liberty enlightening the world stands more than 300 feet high.

French historian Edouard Laboulaye suggested the presentation of this statue to the United States, commemorating the alliance of France and the United States during the American Revolution. The copper colossus was designed by Frederic Auguste Bartholdi and erected according to plans by Gustave Eiffel.

Design Patent Drawing For Statue of Liberty
Frederic Auguste Bartholdi was a French sculptor born in Alsace. He created many monumental sculptures, his most famous work was the Statue of Liberty. The statue is constructed of copper sheets which are assembled on a framework of steel supports designed by Eugene-Emmanuel Viollet-le-Duc and Alexandre-Gustave Eiffel. For transit to America, the figure was disassembled into 350 pieces and packed in 214 crates. Four months later, it was reassembled on Bedloe's Island (renamed Liberty Island in 1956). On October 28, 1886, President Grover Cleveland dedicated the Statue of Liberty before thousands of spectators. Since the 1892 opening of nearby Ellis Island Immigration Station, Bartholdi's Liberty has welcomed more than 12,000,000 immigrants to America. Emma Lazarus's famous lines engraved on the statue's pedestal are linked to our conception of the statue Americans call "Lady Liberty":

Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me
- Emma Lazarus, "The New Colossus," 1883
