A french gift

Statue of Liberty

100_6614

In the times of independence of Perú from the spanish dominion my city received a gift. France sent this statue of liberty. This gift has about two centuries and a strange kind of fungus attacked it, you can see a lot of small holes on the surface. Some artists said that this piece of art must be taken off, and put a big fountain of water, or any other live kind of art.

It would be a shame to destroy this. Better to spend the money restoring it.

It looks like damage from acid rain (although a check of Trujillo's climate does not show much rain). My second guess would be erosion from blowing sand (but, again, I have no knowledge of Trujillo's climate).

Amazing how something so seemingly solid can be worn away.

This is so interesting. I wonder how many Statues of Liberties France has sent around the world.

Just restore it. After all, the statue is about liberty and independence. What a simple fountain is about anyway?
