A small version of the Statue of Liberty is in Washington, DC.

The figure has been placed in front of the French Ambassador's home. An inauguration ceremony was held, marking more than 135 years since the first Statue of Liberty was unveiled in New York. Yesterday was also Bastille Day for the French.

The replica is one-sixteenth the size of the original, weighs a thousand pounds and was created using an 1878 plaster model from sculptorAuguste Bartholdi. The miniature version will be in D.C. for the next ten years.
