She has several names

Designed by French sculptor Frederic Bartholdi, the statue was dedicated in 1886, and in 1924 she was designated as a National Monument. Whatever you prefer to call her, the statue remains a national treasure.
She’s had work done
Yes, Lady Liberty has had a few nips and tucks. In the mid-1980s, she underwent a multimillion-dollar renovation. As part of the project, she received a new torch to replace the old one that was corroded beyond mending. On July 5, 1986, a centennial celebration marked the official return of Lady Liberty.

To create the “skeleton” on which he would hammer large copper sheets to serve as “skin,” sculptor Bartholdi called on Alexandre-Gustave Eiffel, designer of the iconic Eiffel Tower. Eiffel created the framework from iron pylon and steel. This allowed the copper skin to move freely, which would be necessary for enduring the vigorous winds of New York Harbor.
