The Statue of Liberty was the first statue designed by Bartholdi to be completed. Earlier, in the 1850s, while traveling in Egypt, the Nubia and Ethiopia, he designed an immense lighthouse for the opening of the Suez Canal in Egypt, but the design was not accepted.

After the Statue of Liberty was dedicated in 1886, Bartholdi also completed a thirty-six foot high sculpture of a lion in Belfort, France. This sculpture commemorates the defense of the town of Belfort, during the Franco-Prussian War (1870-1871).
