Here are some curious photographs of this iconic Statue in various states of disarray. They were taken when she was under construction in Paris during the mid-1880s.
"The Statue of Liberty was supposed to be a centennial gift from France to the United States, but funding difficulties waylaid the project for almost a decade. The head and torch were completed long before the base and the rest of the body — these disembodied sculptures were put on display years prior, with the hand ending up at the Philadelphia Centennial Exhibition in 1876. Only after a decade of fundraising did construction accelerate." via io9
