“One is never cured of a yearning for freedom.” ~Édouard René Lefèbvre de Laboulaye.

Laboulaye can be thanked for the conceptualizing the Statue of Liberty. He was a Frenchman who strongly stood for freedom and admired the United States constitution. In 1865 he proposed that the monument be erected in New York Harbor, a gift from the French citizens to the United States people. A sister Lady Liberty statue would find a home in Luxemoburg Gardens, Paris, France. Though many miles apart the sister statues were constructed to face each other.

Although, Laboulaye devised the concept it was Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi who ultimately designed the Statue of Liberty as we know it. Lady Liberty is a portrayal of Libertas, the Roman goddess of liberty. Her hands strongly clutch a torch and a tablet evoking the law. At her feet you will notice broken chains. All of these aspects are symbolic of freedom and justice.

Like Aboulaye so eloquently put, freedom is never yearned for less. There is no other statue as symbolic for liberty and justice for all than that of the statue of liberty. The fact that the Statue of Liberty was a gift from the French to the United States shows brotherhood between nations and illustrates the human need for freedom.
