Weighing 1,000 pounds and at 9-feet tall, the bronze replica, made from the plaster mold of the 1878 original, was safely shipped via ground transportation through CMA CGM Group subsidiary, CEVA Logistics, and has now been installed at the French Ambassador’s residence in time to celebrate Bastille Day.”
