This statue made of resin is a 12-meter high replica of the Statue of Liberty. It was sculpted to commemorate the 100th death anniversary of the sculptor Auguste Batholdi, who was born in Colmar and created the "Liberty lightening the world".
Many initiatives, animations and events took place in Colmar for the anniversary of Bartholdi’s death. Among them, the Municipality of Colmar has chosen to install in the northern entrance to the town, this replica of the Statue of Liberty. It is intended to honor the most prestigious artist of Colmar and pay tribute to the work of art which is probably the most famous in the world. This statue is also another link with the United States, already symbolized since 1986 by the signature of a twinning agreement between Colmar and the university town of Princeton, not far from New York.
