The copper statue is a robed female figure representing the Roman goddess Libertas. She is holding a torch above her head in one hand and carrying a Tabula Ansata inscribed in Roman numerals with "JULY IV MDCCLXXVI" (July 4, 1776), the date of the U.S. Declaration of Independence, on the other hand. The seven spikes in the statue's crown signify the seven continents, each measuring up to 9 feet in length and weighing as much as 150 pounds. There are 25 windows in the crown, which symbolize gemstones and heaven's rays shining on the world. The green color of the statue is due to the natural weathering of the copper.
