An alternative Lady Liberty

Although probably only a few readers are aware of it at this time, way back in 2010 I wrote a post about a painting that served as a model for the Statue of Liberty and which I argued would have been better had it been interpreted more literally. Apparently famous Japanese artist Hajime Sorayama (b. 1947) at least once thought along the same lines.
