"Lady Liberty"

There aren't many more iconic patriotic images than Lady Liberty. Locally hand painted, this Lady Liberty axe is one of a kind. Artist Maggie Anderson of Hillsboro, IL created this axe using oil paints. This masterpiece is painted on our 28" straight, grade A American hickory handle and features our Hardcore Hammers Raptor axe head. The handle is sealed with a protective polyurethane finish.

"The Statue of Liberty Enlightening the World" was a gift of friendship from the people of France to the United States and is recognized as a universal symbol of freedom and democracy. The Statue of Liberty was dedicated on October 28, 1886. It was designated as a National Monument in 1924. Employees of the National Park Service have been caring for the colossal copper statue since 1933.
