Bartholdi's creation has had a rough time lately, on top of being outed as transgender (it's hard enough for her being an immigrant). A protester climbed her pedestal on the Fourth of July. And the Postal Service had to pay Robert S. Davidson, the sculptor of Lady Liberty's little sister in Las Vegas, $3.5 million for copyright infringement because they put Davidson's statue on a stamp instead of Bartholdi's original.
