Lady Liberty has a "little sister" and she’s on her way to the U.S. from France. A near 10-foot replica of the Statue of Liberty will be making two holiday appearances this summer, according to a joint press release from the Embassy of France in Washington, D.C., the National Conservatory of Arts and Crafts and logistics company CMA CGM Group. The bronze recreation, which was made from the same plaster model that French sculptor Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi used when he created the original landmark statue in 1878, will be displayed in New York City and the District of Columbia for a limited time this summer. On June 19, the replica will "board" a ship in Le Havre, a major port in Upper Normandy and begin a nine-day journey across the Atlantic. Upon arrival in New York, the mini statue will be prepped for exhibition.
