In 1856, Auguste Bartholdi was inspired to begin working on what would become his most noted work of art.

He was approached by the French government to design a lighthouse to put at the entrance of the Suez Canal (Red Sea to the Mediterranean sea).

He spent ten years working on the design and model of this lighthouse, but he couldn’t get it financed.

The Suez Canal opened without it, and Bartholdi felt he wasted 10 years of his life.

Later when the French wanted to provide a gift for America, they contacted Bartholdi again. (His lighthouse design was perfect)

A colossal robed lady that stood taller than the Sphinx, held a book of justice in one hand and a torch in the other. (Statue of Liberty)

What started out as devastating, discouragement, disappointment, ended up a magnificent success.
