The Statue of Liberty is 46 m (151 ft) high. Its base and pedestal increase the height of the monument to 93 m (305 ft). The surface of the statue is composed of hammered copper sheets about 2.4 mm (about 0.01 in) thick that are riveted to an iron framework. The iron frame was devised by French engineer Gustave Alexandre Eiffel, who also built the Eiffel Tower in Paris.
Emma Lazarus' sonnet "The New Colossus" was inscribed in bronze at the base of the statue. It reads:
