Wow.. I didn’t know that
File under : things I wasn’t taught in school
this post isnt even true the statue in the first picture was sculpted in 2007 to commemorate the 159th anniversary of the emancipation proclamation what a stupid and irritating post this is
Also the Statue of Liberty was given to America in the late 1800s, ie LONG before color photography, so I’m not sure how you would have gotten that color photo of the “original.” Additionally, the statue is supposed to represent Libertas, the Roman goddess of freedom, and the face was modeled after the sculptors mother.
Here’s something the vast majority of the tumblr population should have learned in school: FACT CHECKING AND THE ABILITY TO ANALYZE NEW INFORMATION FOR LONGER THAN FIVE SECONDS TO DETERMINE IF IT’S PLAUSIBLE, HOLY FUCKING SHIT.
