Lady Liberty, Ten Times Larger! Answered

A maze featuring a recreation of the Statue of Liberty 10 times larger than the original has been unveiled in Yorkshire.

Composed of more than a million living maize plants and covering about 18 acres, is one of the biggest mazes ever constructed.

With a length of 1,300ft it dwarfs the real Statue of Liberty, which is just 111ft high.

"As a 'new' York Maze it seemed appropriate to base this year's design on New York," Mr Pearcey said.

"I also wanted to mark the links between York and New York.

"The Statue of Liberty is an instantly recognisable image and makes a great maze."

Stephen Briganti, president and chief executive of The Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation, in New York City, said: "We are so pleased to see that the Statue of Liberty is being celebrated in such a unique way in York.

"Lady Liberty stands as a symbol for all the people in the world but it is especially gratifying to see her linking Old York with New York."

See Nacho's post further down - it shows as a Viking ship at the moment. When Google Earth catches up with the maze, it will be in a different location as well, nearer to the air museum.

. Her "crown" and head are just below the dark line toward the upper left corner. The torch is in the area above the dark line. The "star" is close to her belly button (as pointed out by Kiteman). Her feet would be in the lower right corner.

. Go to Google Maps.
. Find Osbaldwick, UK
. Find intersection of A64 and A1079/Hull Rd (due East of Osbaldwick)
. Look to the SW of intersection.

A colleague looked at their house on GE, the car in the drive was red, and they hadn't owned a red car for six years.
