Although this statue may be recognizable, the scene is not set in New York. Hundreds of smaller versions of the Statue of Liberty reside around the world, including the one depicted in this print, which is located in Paris. Both the United States and France see the statue as a symbol of freedom, and Americans gave one as a gift to Parisians during the 19th century.
