Statue of Liberty 3d puzzle from Ravensburger

The Statue of Liberty is the most iconic national monument of America. This colossal neoclassic sculpture on Liberty Island in New York Harbor was designed by the French sculptor Frederic Bartholdi and built by Gustave Eiffel. It was a gift to the USA from the people of France. Now you can recreate your own mini version of a torch-bearing goddess in a Statue of Liberty 3d puzzle
Ravensburger is always finding new landmarks to add to their extensive and impressive collection of 3d puzzles.

I have enjoyed assembling quite a few of Ravensburger 3d puzzles in the past, and they are a pleasure to work with.
The plastic pieces are high quality, durable and easy to assemble. Each piece has a number on the reverse as well as a little arrow pointing to where the next piece should be attached to. Of course, you can also assemble the whole puzzle by eye, if you prefer, just looking at the design rather than the number on the back.

Once all the hinged plastic pieces are slotted together, you can display it on a printed base board (or if you don't have enough space, leave it without a board; we put all our 3d great monuments' puzzles on the bookshelves).
There are 108 puzzle pieces, and the end result measures 37.5cm tall when completed.
The statue of the goddess is made of sturdy plastic, with great attention to detail.
The robed Roman goddess Libertas bears a torch and a tabula ansata (a tablet evoking the law) with the American Declaration of Independence. 

It is another beautiful puzzle from Ravensburger which is well known for its high quality, imaginative range of puzzles.

This icon of freedom would make a superb gift for any puzzle lover. And why not give it as a Thank you gift to your favourite teacher?!
