Sample Answer:
Thank you for this nice cue card topic. In fact, the Statue of Liberty, located on the Liberty Island in New York, is one of the most impressive and wonderful sculptures in the whole world and attracts thousands of tourists every day from different parts of the world. This is a historical sculpture and was a gift from the French people to the USA marking the centennial of the liberty of the USA. I am thankful for this cue card topic and the remaining answer goes here.

It was made of copper. The structure of the statue was made with the combination of iron and copper. And it was sent to the USA by breaking down the entire statue into several parts. The design of the statue was done by Frederich Bartholdi while it was made by Gustave Eiffel himself who is also famous for the construction of the Eiffel Tower in France.

The statue is a symbolic one and the Lady Liberty has a nice look. The statue is also known as the Liberty Enlightening the World. The statue is in the form of a robbed woman who represents Libertas. Libertas was a Roman goddess. And here, the statue wears a crown on her head, holds a torch with her right hand above the head. She is also carrying a book in her left arm that contains the date of independence declaration of the USA. The broken chain down at her feet symbolizes freedom.

This is a beautiful sculpture indeed in all terms. Though the symbolic meaning is not known to all, people all around the world come to visit the statue and the island only to enjoy its exceptional beauty. Earlier, the visitors could have reached the torch but now the visit is limited. It has been enlisted with the UNESCO World Heritage Site list in 1984.
