The United States Culture
The Statue of Liberty is an international symbol of freedom. It greeted thousands of immigrants and visitors as they entered New York Bay and arrived in the United States. In 1903 the sonnet "The New Colossus" by American poetEmma Lazarus was inscribed in bronze at the base of the statue. It reads:

The son of an Algerian immigrant to Belgium. He has a nebulous, but a real need to express something. This statues has nothing to do with the United States for this man. It has more to do with a idea, or a feeling he has in himself. He said it was a symbol of the birth of freedom.
Walking in Maceio Brazil. I looked over and saw this statue. Saying to myself, "What is that?", walking closer I see it is what I think. It is a small replica of the Statue of Liberty. In a stretch of road that is not pretty. This is not a tourist attraction. It is lone statue in the middle of a small park, in a places that you will not see. Unless you are a hobo walking the street, looking at the peoples, seeing the faces that are real. I imagine that somewhere a person had a small dream, he or she wanted to say something. Probably to say. Yes, we believe in freedom also.
I took this picture from the window of a bus.
The world is large, vast, and beautiful.
Please send me other photos around the world of replicas of Statue of Liberty
