Explanation:
    Since 1886, the Statue of Liberty has been a symbol of freedom to people all over the world, meaning that when they look at a picture or photograph of the statue of liberty, they think about freedom in the United States. The Statue of Liberty welcomes people to the United States, or lets them know that the country is happy to have them come to visit or live there. The Statue of Liberty was a gift from the government of France and now stands on Liberty Island in New York.
    从1886年开始,自由女神像就成为了全世界人民自由的标志,当他们从照片或图集中看到自由女神像时,就会联想到美国的自由平等。自由女神像欢迎来到美国的人们,她是法国政府送给美国的礼物,如今屹立在纽约的自由岛上。
    The Statue of Liberty, which is often referred to as “she” (or as a woman), is 151 feet (or 46 meters) tall and stands on a pedestal (or base) so that she reaches up to 305 feet (or 93 meters) tall. She is made of copper, which is a type of metal that turns green over time. Visitors used to be able to walk up the 354 steps inside the statue to enjoy panoramic (or very big and wide) views of New York City, but today they can see the statue only from below.
    这座象征自由的雕像是座女神像,高151尺(46米),建造在一个台基之上,总高305尺(93米)。她是一尊铜像,众所周知,铜在空气中久了会泛绿。从前,游客们可以走上354级台阶,从雕像内部纵览整个纽约市全貌,但如今只能从雕像脚下窥得一角。
    The Statue of Liberty is a statue of a woman wearing long robes, or large pieces of cloth that are worn over her shoulders and reach to her feet. Her right arm is extended (or held up) into the air and holds a torch, which is a long stick that burns on one end to make light. Her left arm holds a tablet, or a large piece of stone where writing has been carved or cut into the stone. The tablet says July 4, 1776, which is the day that the United States adopted or approved the Declaration of Independence and stopped being part of Great Britain. The date is written in Roman numerals, which is a way of writing numbers using letters instead of numbers.
    雕塑上的女神穿着长袍,遮住了她的膝盖直达脚底。她的右手持火炬,高高伸向空中,照亮了整个天空。她的左手上拿着一块刻着字的牌匾。上面写着,1776年7月4日,美国通过《独立宣言》,正式从大英帝国独立。日期是用罗马数字表示的。
    When it is very windy, the Statue of Liberty sways (or moves from side to side) in the wind. The statue itself moves about 3 inches (or 7 centimeters), and the torch sways even more.

    当风很大的时候,自由女神像就会在风中摇摆,大约左右摆动3英寸(7厘米),她手中的火炬则晃动的更加厉害。
