Product Description

This is a 3D model recreated via photogrammetry from a rare bronze model of the Statue of Liberty. The original model was cast on demand by Frederic Auguste Bartholdi from his maquette or working model for the Statue of Liberty.

Bartholdi kept all the rights for bronze casts of the Statue of Liberty after it was finished and erected in New York. There aren't many in existence from his lifetime as he typically had bronze casts made for friends or benefactors. He did have a number of larger bronze casts made on demand for various French municipalities but they were all lost during WWII as the bronze was a valuable commodity during wartime. 

The personal models varied in size from around 50cm to 1 meter. There is just such a bronze on display today in the museum at the base of the Statue of Liberty. It is a copy made so the public could see it more easily. It also permits people with vision problems to see it with their fingers. 

I was lucky enough to extensively photograph another of the rare bronze models and recreated it. The only differences in my version versus the original is that I rotated the flame clockwise so the flares point in the same general direction as the one in New York. (Bartholdi seems to have changed his mind several times regarding the shape and direction of the flame; a comparison of photos of the flame taken during the construction of the Statue of Liberty show it looking markedly different from its final form by the time it was set up in New York. Other versions of the Statue of Liberty from before and after the erection of the Statue of Liberty show still more different versions of the flame). The other change I made in my model was to alter the rays of the crown to match the configuration of Liberty in New York. The original model had the rays pointed at a steeper angle upwards.

When I was a kid, I was fascinated, if not downright obssessed with the Statue of Liberty. I would have loved to have a model with this sort of detail back then. I'm sure there are other kids and adults who might like this so I thought I'd share it.
