To the wonderful staff at RVTravel.com. This is NOT the face of the Statue of Liberty. It is the proposed muslin face of Lady Liberty in the original design that was not used in the final creation of the Statue of Liberty. Please review this link and please revise the contest results based on this.

Clearly the picture you posted in the contest is far different from the actual face on the Statue of Liberty. Hard to believe I am the only one pointing this out in the comments section.

Thanks for all you do…very much enjoy reading your column’s.

Thanks for the comment, Mitch. Here is a quote from the Daily Beast, linked in the SFGATE article you attached: “To truly be Lady Liberty, the figure built with kids’ coins and originally conceived as a Muslim must remain a Muslim as well as a Christian and a Jew and a Hindu and a Buddhist and every other faith, even no faith at all.” Also, the caption below the image in that article says: “Statue of Liberty .. Liberty’s 17 foot 3 inch copper face, a likeness of the sculptor’s mother, stands uncrated ready for assembly on Bedloe’s Island ( now Liberty Island).” According to the National Park Service (and other sources): “The Statue of Liberty’s face is said to be modeled after the sculptor’s [a Frenchman] mother.” I believe the image we posted is the actual face of the current Statue of Liberty (although, to me, it looks a lot like Elvis 😉 ). —Diane at RVtravel.com

Hi Diane… Yea…I read the whole article. I respectfully disagree with your assessment. The face posted in the contest was the original design NOT USED in the Statue of Liberty. As you stated…you think it looks like Elvis. It clearly is not the face on the Statue of Liberty. Just go to this web page and compare them side by side.

The question is are you going to change the results of the contest to reflect a winner that chose the correct answer…”None of the above” ?

Thanks, Mitch. And when I said I think it looks like Elvis, of course I was being facetious. But I appreciate your additional information. 😀 —Diane at RVtravel.com

Diane, did you click on the link and compare the posted photo in the contest to the actual statue of liberty? Don’t you concur that the 2 are not the same?
