Where was the Statue of Liberty intended to stand?

Answer:

EGYPT

The Statue of Liberty was the idea of sculptor Frederic Bartholdi. He was inspired to create Lady Liberty after seeing the colossal statues in Luxor and intended her to stand in Egypt. Bartholdi envisioned a colossal monument featuring a robe-clad woman representing Egypt to stand at Port Said, the city at the northern terminus of the canal in Egypt. Early models of the statue were called “Egypt Carrying the Light to Asia.” Egypt rejected the plan as too costly. Bartholdi eventually repurposed his concept into “Liberty Enlightening the World”—the official name for the statue that has been overlooking New York Harbor since 1886.
