MEXICO BUILDS HER OWN “STATUE OF LIBERTY” (Feb, 1936)

MEXICO BUILDS HER OWN “STATUE OF LIBERTY”
Larger than the Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor is a massive monument recently erected on an island in Lake Patzcuaro, State of Michoacan, Mexico. The upheld right arm is reminiscent of the American Goddess of Liberty, but the striking, angular lines of the Mexican statue are more modernistic in style. The monument is a memorial to Jose Maria Morelos, a leader in the war by which Mexico won her independence from Spain.
