    Sorry, but this not the prototype of Miss Liberty.

    On July 4, 1889 the American community in Paris offered the French people a gift of a bronze replica of the Statue of Liberty, 1/4 scale, about 35 feet high.

    The original stays in the Jardin du Luxembourg.

    I'm researching this topic right now, so I will get back to you, but Wikipedia isn't a credible source
    Remember what movie these are from? I bet you don't!

    McMaster is right, the original that Bartholdi used as model during the construction of the real statue in NY is located at his hack under trees. It's 2 meters tall.

    Nearly everyone believes that the statue at the bridge is the original but it was constructed later.

    By the way, you can't allways trust Wikipedia. The articles there are made by people like you and I and not by experts.
