A copy of the statue of Liberty

The production process for the sculpture of the artist Danh Vo, We the People, Shanghai.

The resulting piece is a full-size copy of the Statue of Liberty, divided into 400 fragments, exhibited around the world starting in 2012.

Part of the ear, robes and a hand fragment were presented at his recent show at the Guggenheim Museum. The thickness of metal sheets, as in the replica, and in the original sculpture is 2 millimeters, which seems rather unimaginable for a statue that happens to look so monumental, seemingly cast entirely of metal.
