One of our favorite holidays at Statue.com is coming up. You’re probably thinking ‘Halloween,’ right? While it is true we do love Halloween, there is another holiday near and dear to our heart, Veterans Day. Every year Edwardsville, the town we are located in, hosts a Veteran’s Day Parade. We throw a big party at the Bohm Building, which is along the parade route, to celebrate and thank those who have served in the military. We are so grateful for those and their loved ones who have made this sacrifice.

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

Statue-Liberty-Wall-Sculpture

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.

Eagle Sculpture of Freedom

One of my favorite things to do in the early spring is to travel up the river road and watch the bald eagles nest, just North of Grafton, Illinois. For those of you not familiar with the area, Grafton is located about 40 miles north of St. Louis on the Illinois side of the river.

The eagles have such a majestic, regal presence as the soar effortlessly through the air. It is no surprise this animal embodies the symbolism of pride, strength, freedom, unity and longevity. This symbolism is precisely why the Founding Fathers choose the Bald Eagle to represent the United States.

On June 20, 1782, the Second Continental Congress adopted the Great Seal of the United States depicting a bald eagle clutching 13 arrows and a 13 leaf olive branch. From there Bald Eagles would also appear on United States’ coins, bills, the presidential flag and many federal agency logos.
