Statue of Liberty
The Statue of Liberty, like Independence Hall, has a significant place in the cultural heritage of America. It stands at the entrance to New York Harbor and was one of the first sights for new immigrants arriving in America. It's giant torch a beacon of hope and opportunity in a new world. The statue holds a special quality that is inherent to The Sunrise Review, the mixing of world cultures. Originally intended for the Suez Canal in Egypt by French designer Frédéric-Auguste Bartholdi, it was built in Paris and shipped across the sea in 241 crates.
