Few monuments in the world are as iconic as the Statue of Liberty. Standing 305 feet tall on New York’s Liberty Island, it is a statue that almost everyone is instantly familiar with, no matter where in the world they live.

Be part of the Lego Architecture series (opens in a new tab), which started back in 2008, is expected to pay attention to detail.
