The statue of Liberty was built in the late 1800’s. The craftsmen who worked on it paid as much attention to the details on the top of the stature as they did to the rest of the statue though at that time there was no way for anyone to ever notice it; no planes flew at that time, no high rises, etc. It was not until the early 1900’s when airplanes were able to fly above it that people noticed the exquisite details and beauty of the top. The workers that had built it earlier could have argued reasonably that such detail on the top was not even necessary but they were more than artisans were, they were artists, so all details were important whether they were seen or not. Such should be our lives.
