An icon of freedom and of the United States, the statue is of a colossal robed female figure representing Liberty, derived from Libertas. A broken chain lies at her feet. She is bearing a torch in her upraised right hand and, in her left arm, a "tabula ansata" (a tablet evoking the law) inscribed with the date of the American Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776.
