The surface appearance of one of these famous monuments in the United States can sensibly be described using the word 'patina', but which?

Correct answer:
  • Statue of Liberty

Incorrect answers:
  • Washington Monument
  • Mount Rushmore
  • St. Louis Arch

Interesting Info:
  • Anything constructed of copper and left to the elements will eventually develop a green incrustation, caused by oxidation. For the most part, in sculpture, a patina is seen as something attractive...and the Statue of Liberty's green appearance is no exception. While the Statue of Liberty is made of copper, the St. Louis Arch was constructed of stainless steel, hence it will never incur patination. Mt. Rushmore and the Washington Monument are both constructed of stone, and hence will certainly not develop patinas.
