I was going to comment on the statue's (not statute's) connection to Eiffel but I see that it was touched on in your last video link. I never been inside it. I've only glimpsed it from a distance as a teen. It would be cool to see her clean and shiny like a new penny, but her verdigris patina is protective and should never be removed. Interesting post!
I added some photos of the interior. Yes it does have the Eiffel look to it.
I had to stop Anonymous comments due to spam. But I welcome all legitimate comments. Thanks.
