A Lego replica of the Statue of Liberty consisting of 2882 bricks and standing 0.9 m (3 ft) is a popular sculpture among Lego enthusiasts. The statue went out of production, but due to popular demand was returned to sale. (See External links below).[34] A much larger replica built entirely in Lego can be seen in Legoland Billund. A smaller version of the Billund model is on display at the Legoland California amusement park.

A 25-foot (7.6 m) replica of the Statue, lofting a Christian cross, holding the Ten Commandments, and named the "Statue of Liberation through Christ", was erected by a predominantly African-American church in Memphis, Tennessee on July 4, 2006. [35]

A small replica stands on the grounds of the Cherokee Capitol Building in Tahlequah, Oklahoma, a gift from the local Boy Scouts in 1950.[36]

There is a 6-foot tall replica in Lebanon, Tennessee, near the southwest corner of the intersection of East Main Street and South College Street.

Fargo, North Dakota also has a replica of the statue of liberty on the corner of Main Ave. & 2nd Street at the entrance of the Main avenue bridge. [37]

The Kansas State Capitol in Topeka, Kansas has a replica of the Statue of Liberty.

There is a replica on the shoreline of Lake Chaubunagungamaug in Webster, Massachusetts.[38]

In order to promote the 2008 Major League Baseball All-Star Game at Yankee Stadium, the city of New York has 42 different 8'6" Statue of Liberty replicas, each in different locations in the city (34 outdoors, 8 indoors). Each is uniquely designed with different team colors and logos, along with several ones with the All-Star Game logo or different New York landmarks. This is similar to what was done with the cows in Chicago, the crabs in Baltimore, the angels in Los Angeles, and the Mr. Potato Head's in the state of Rhode Island. 9" replicas can be bought of the larger replicas.

There is one also on Alki Beach, in Seattle, WA.

From 1887 to 1945, Hanoi was home to another copy of the statue. Measuring 2.85 m (9 ft 4 in) tall, it was erected by the French colonial government after being sent from France for an exhibition. It was known to locals unaware of its history as Tượng Bà đầm xòe (Statue of the Open-Dress Dame). When the French lost control of French Indochina during World War II, the statue was toppled on August 1, 1945 after being deemed a vestige of the colonial government along with other statues erected by the French.[39]

During the Tiananmen Square protest of 1989, Chinese student demonstrators in Beijing built a 10 m (33 ft) image called the Goddess of Democracy, which sculptor Tsao Tsing-yuan said was intentionally dissimilar to the Statue of Liberty to avoid being "too openly pro-American." (See article for a list of replicas of that statue.)

In 1897 a 123 cm (4 ft 0 in) replica in iron and bronze was erected in Cenicero, Spain, to honor local fighters during the First Carlist War.

In 1936 it was removed during the dictatorship of Francisco Franco.

It was restored in 1976 and moved indoor in 1997 because of deterioration.

A new bronze statue replaced it in the original plaza.[40] In Japan, the French Statue of Liberty came to Odaiba, the beach area of Tokyo since April 1998 until May 1999 in commemoration of "The French year in Japan". Because of its popularity, in 2000, a replica of the French Statue of Liberty was erected at the same place (Photo). Also in Japan, a small Statue of Liberty is in the Amerika-mura (American Village) shopping district in Osaka, Japan. Another one is located in a small town outside of Misawa,Japan where the United States has a USAF base with 8000 military members.

In Buenos Aires,Argentina there is a small replica in Barrancas De Belgrano Square, acquired by Argentina to France.

In Lima, Peru the New York casino in the Jesus Maria District has a small replica in the main entrance. The whole casino is a tribute to the state of New York and the USA.

A smaller replica is in the Norwegian village of Visnes, where the copper used in the original statue was mined.[41]

A replica stands atop the Hotel Victory in Priština, Kosovo.[42]

A replica stands in front of New York City Center, a shoopping in Barra da Tijuca, State of Rio de Janeiro, Brazilian Federation.

In Minimundus, a miniature park located at the Wörthersee in Carinthia, Austria is another replica of the Statue of Liberty.[43]

There is also a small replica located at RAF Lakenheath at the base flag plaza, made from leftover copper from original.[44]

At a highway intersection in Jerusalem called "New York Square," there is an abstract skeletal replica of the Statue.[citation needed]

A 35 m (115 ft) copy is in the German Heidepark Soltau theme park, located on a lake with cruising Mississippi steamboats. It weighs 28 tonnes (31 short tons), is made of plastic foam on a steel frame with polyester cladding, and was designed by the Dutch artist Gerla Spee.[45]

Camp John Hay, a former US base in the Baguio City (Philippines), also has a small replica of the statue near the amphitheater.

A 30-foot replica can also be seen at the Westfield Marion shopping complex in Adelaide, South Australia.

A 17-foot, 9 ton replica stood atop the Liberty Shoe factory in Leicester, England until 2003 when the building was demolished. The statue, which dates back to the 1920s, has since been in storage, however as of December 2008 is has now been restored upon a pedistal near Liberty Park Halls of Residence, Eastern Boulevard.[46][47]


A 15 feet high replica of the statue of liberty is seen in the western entrance to the village of Arraba in Israel, near a local restaurant.

A 10 feet high replica is situated on the stairwell of a bowling alley building in Warrington, England. It used to be above the entrance of a restaurant nearby.

There are at least two Statue of Liberty replicas (greater than 30 feet) in Taiwan. These two statues are in the cities of Keelung and Taipei. Here are two photos for reference. A replica of the torch was created for the 1968 film,Planet of the Apes, for the last scene, and the torch was later sent to be in the last episode of Lost in Space, titles "Junkyard of Space".

The Statue of Liberty quickly became a popular icon, featured in scores of posters, pictures, motion pictures, and books. A 1911 O. Henry story relates a fanciful conversation between "Mrs. Liberty" and another statue;[39] it figured in 1918 Liberty Loan posters. During the 1940s and 1950s, pulp Science Fiction magazines featured Lady Liberty surrounded by ruins or by the sediments of the ages.

It has been in dozens of motion pictures. It is a setting in the 1942 Alfred Hitchcock movie Saboteur, which featured a climactic confrontation at the statue. Half submerged in the sand, the Statue provided the apocalyptic revelation at the end of 1968's Planet of the Apes. The statue became a character in the 1989 film, Ghostbusters II, in which it comes to life and helps defeat the evil villain, and was the setting for the climax of the first X-Men film. It can also be seen lying broken on the ground in the movie Independence Day, after the first wave of attacks by the extra-terrestrial biological beings from outer space. In the 2004 movie The Day After Tomorrow, the statue gets frozen, and in the 2008 movie Cloverfield, it is decapitated by a giant monster; its head lands in a Manhattan street. In the film, National Treasure: Book of Secrets, the sister statue in Paris provides a clue.

It was the subject of a 1978 University of Wisconsin-Madison prank in which Lady Liberty appeared to be standing submerged in a frozen-over local lake.[40] It has appeared on New York and New Jersey license plates, is used as a logo for the NHL's New York Rangers and the WNBA's New York Liberty, and it was the subject of magician David Copperfield's largest vanishing act.[41]

The statue is often used as a comparative measurement (usually referring to height rather than length) in books and documentaries.
