Statue of Oxidated Liberty

I would like to see something done about the discoloration of the Statue of Liberty. Not many people realize that the distinctive green color that is associated with the statue is different from its natural color. It is a copper structure, and it has been weathered from constant exposure to the Atlantic winds. I suggest that we 1) carefully sand off the outer layer of tarnished copper, 2) buff the underlying copper to a shine, 3) then cover it in a protective coating that will prevent future discoloration and retain the copper’s original brilliance. Imagine pulling into New York harbor and seeing a massive, shiny Statue of Liberty.
