This is a photo of the Head of Statue of Liberty on display in a park in Paris added by Ancient Faces on January 11, 2012.

The Statue of Liberty was conceived in 1876 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the American Revolution. She faces East, greeting incoming ships while also looking back toward her birthplace in France. Nearly a quarter-of-a-million onlookers lined Battery Park, while hundreds of boats pulled into the harbor to welcome the Isère when she arrived with the statue.

President Grover Cleveland, a former New York governor, dedicated the statue on Oct. 28, 1886, before tens of thousands of spectators.

Today in 1885, the Statue of Liberty arrived from France. It was a gift of friendship that arrived in 350 pieces and had to be assembled in place. This 1883 photo was taken in a park in Paris before shipping. Just her huge head. :)
