2013年暑假紐約大學AENY(紐約遊學團)DAY 8

 

厚厚的雲層百分之四十的降雨機率抵擋不住我們拜訪自由女神的決心,以往只能在書本中或電視電影裡才能看到的自由女神即將出現在我們面前。法國為了紀念與美國的友誼及慶祝美國獨立一百周年,由艾菲爾公司打造(先有女神才有鐵塔喔),用設計師媽媽的面容,太太的身材設計出來,VICKY姊說銅皮鐵骨的自由女神身高46公尺重225噸,好巨大的女神啊頭冠的七道光芒代表著七大洲,左手抱著美國憲法右手持火炬指引往來船隻方向,腳踝斷掉的鐵鍊代表掙脫枷鎖,在19世紀時有百分之四十的移民從紐約進入美國,每當歐洲移民船隻看到自由女神時就知道美國到了,OHAMERICA


                                                       

                                                         

                                                                  

今年很難得地訂到自由女神博物館的票,能夠進入基座中,一窺她發想、設計及打造、組裝的過程,也經由博物館的展示了解到期時我們現在看到的自由女神其實已經經過改造而非原始設計的面貌(原來自由女神也需要醫美整型一下)

 

進入博物館爬到底座的最高處,幾百階的樓梯讓大家氣喘吁吁,但眼前的美麗風景卻又讓大家感到不虛此行

 

 

                                                           

                                                           

                                                           

看我們背後的風景是不是真的很美

 

                                                         

                                                        
                                                      

                                                     

                  
                                                      

                                                      

                                                     

                                                     

                                                     

                                                                              

                                                                              

                                                  

女神其實已經變過臉了
