Watercolor representing the proposed statuary project, Egypt Bringing Light to Asia
France (1869)
Musée Bartholdi, Colmar.
[x]
After visiting Egypt in 1855, the French sculptor Auguste Bartholdi was deeply inspired by the ancient monumental statues that he saw. In 1869, he visited  Isma’il Pasha, Khedive of Egypt, with a proposal for a new statue of his own: a lighthouse in the shape of an ancient Egyptian female fellah or peasant, holding a torch at the northern entrance to the Suez Canal in Port Said.
The project never materialised, so he recycled the plans for the Statue of Liberty instead.
