The Statue of Liberty Turns Green
The statue of liberty doesn’t require any introduction, right? It’s one of the most famous landmarks in the U.S., and in the world. Tourists visiting the statue of liberty might think its color has always been green. However, the photo on the left presents the original color of the statue, which was a shade of reddish-brown.
Originally, the statue’s copper covering provided it with the reddish-brown color you see on the left image. With time, it has gradually turned to the iconic shade of green-blue we’re all familiar with today. The reasons why the statue has changed its color throughout the years have to do mostly with the weather and environmental conditions. The statue was unveiled in 1886, and experts say that by 1920, its color has already changed.
