    Pursuit of liberty

    Muse, Published on 16/03/2013

    » You may have seen the Statue of Liberty on New York City's Liberty Island, but it's unlikely you have seen the Human Statue of Liberty. The shape of the statue was formed by 18,000 officers and soldiers in July 1918 to promote the sale of war bonds, but was never used. It was said many fainted as they were dressed in woollen uniforms and the temperature was almost 41C. Photographed by a Chicago studio, Mole & Thomas, the camera was positioned on top of a specially constructed 24m-high tower. The most impressive fact is due to perspective, 16,000 men formed the torch, while just 2,000 people formed the rest of the statue.
