“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.

We are so proud to include these sculptures within our galleries because we so strongly believe in the message and symbolism behind the Statue of Liberty. We are also proud of our other patriotic statues and sculptures such as Armed Forces Military Branches Sculptures Set of FiveWar Memorial Battle Cross Boots Gun Helmet Statue and Nurse and Sailor Inspired by Wold War II Sculpture.

George Washington Bust

George Washington Bust

Tomorrow marks George Washington’s birthday. It is also recognized as Presidents day here in the United States. It serves as day to remember the sacrifice and honor the brave men that have led the nation from the Oval Office. As apparent by the before and after appearances of past presidents, the role as Commander and Chief is not for the faint of heart.

Sure, the day off work is nice but we truly believe it is important to remember and honor these sacrifices of these brave men. Not only remember these men for one day, but year around.  For this reason we are proud to include a wealth of presidential, portrait and full length sculptures.  From the current United States President, Barack Obama to the first United States President, George Washington the United States Presidents are well represented within our gallery.

On this date in 1790, George Washington delivered the first State of the Union Address in New York City, the provisional US capitol at the time. Nine years later a president would discontinue this practice of traditional oration and instead send a letter to congress.

Do you know which president was responsible for this switch? He had an interesting motive too. You won’t want to miss the answer to this burning question in our blog tomorrow!
