Here is the gallery for our second recreation in our recreate art series! For those of you that don’t know, we have decided to invite the Clitbait community to join us in recreating a piece of art for each of our monthly themes! Since this month’s theme is independence, we have decided that the recreation will be the Statue of Liberty!
This iconic piece of art was given to the Americans by the French in 1886 as both remembrance of the War of Independence against the British as she holds a tablet with the date “July 4, 1776” inscribed on it, and as a commemoration to the recent abolition of slavery in the country as a broken shackle lies at her feet. Acting as a symbol of freedom, this piece of art couldn’t be any more necessary with the upcoming US Presidential elections. And despite even that, Lady Liberty has come to mean a lot to many communities all over the world over time who have taken this piece and reinterpreted it to not only question Liberty, but hold it to account.
Here are the gorgeous and hilarious, political and personal recreations, we hope you enjoy!
