Statues in the news

The American Government has just released a stamp featuring the Statue of Liberty. “So what,” you might ask, “don’t they do that all the time?” They do but usually they use the 125 year old original that welcomes people to New York. This time someone grabbed the first pic they laid their hands on and it turns out it was of the 14 year old Statue of Liberty lookalike outside the New York-New York casino in Las Vegas. The mistake was discovered by a stamp collector not a sculpture buff.
