The 92-meter (302-foot) high Statue of Liberty is the largest present ever. It was given to the Americans by the French people as an expression of friendship and to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the American Declaration of Independence.
The Statue of Liberty was designed by the French sculptor Bartholdi and fabricated in France before being shipped in pieces and assembled in New York.
