The Statue of Liberty (English: Statue of Liberty), officially known as Liberty Illuminating the World, is a monumental statue and observation tower that has been the symbol of America since 1886, on Liberty Island in New York City, USA. It is one of the most recognizable monuments in the world.

The Statue of Liberty, made of copper, was gifted to the USA by France on the occasion of its 100th anniversary. It was built between 1884-1886. It is located on Liberty Island in New York City, USA.

The statue holds a torch in its right hand and an inscription in its left hand. On the tablet is inscribed the date of July 4, 1776 (the date of the Declaration of Independence). The 7 pointed ends of the crown on the head of the statue represent 7 continents or 7 seas. The height of the statue is 46 meters and 93 meters with its pedestal. Visitors can climb a 168-step staircase from inside the statue to the torch. The height of the statue's right hand holding the torch is 13 meters. 15 people can walk together in the corridor around the torch. The width of the head of the statue is 2 meters and its height is 5 meters with its crown.

The Statue of Liberty is open to visitors. Those who want to visit the island can reach the island by a ferry, climb the stairs to the torch and watch the New York harbor.

Isabelle Eugenie Boyer, widow of Isaac Singer, the founder of Singer sewing machines, modeled the statue. One year after the Statue of Liberty was completed in France in 1884, it was divided into 1 pieces and transported to New York harbor in 350 boxes. The pieces were reassembled on the pedestal within 214 months and unveiled in front of thousands of spectators on October 4, 28.

The Statue of Liberty has been on UNESCO's World Heritage List since 1984. A smaller copy of the statue is in Paris and faces the Atlantic Ocean. There are also small copies in other parts of the world (such as Osaka, Pristina, Beijing, Nevada, South Dakota, Bordeaux, Poitiers).

It has been claimed that the statue was made on the order of the Egyptian Khedive Said Pasha to be erected where the Suez Canal opens to the Mediterranean, and that some of the costs were paid by the Ottoman Sultan Abdulaziz. According to the claim put forward by journalist Murat Bardakçı in 2004, the statue ordered was completed, but it was abandoned in Egypt due to the concern that such a large statue would cause discomfort among the Muslim people, and the statue was gifted to the USA in 1884 after it had been kept in a warehouse in France for years. . It has been revealed by the writer Mustafa Armağan that this claim is not true and that the sculptor Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi presented a sculpture project to Said Pasha, but the project was never realized.
