The classic image of Lady Liberty in profile, representing freedom from tyranny and oppression, in gold and blue.
Liberty’s most famous incarnation is as the Statue of Liberty, originally welcoming ships carrying immigrants into New York harbour, a powerful symbol of freedom. This image is based on the Roman goddess Libertas, especially worshipped by freed slaves. The image of Liberty was adopted during the French Revolution, as captured in the famous painting by Delacroix, Liberty Leading the People. Liberty remains an enormously important symbol to this day, and is perfect as a wearable, meaningful cufflink design.
