Goddess of Liberty

Since the French Revolution in 1789, the Goddess of Liberty, Marianne, has been the national symbol of France.  Whether in statue, coin, stamp, medal or on official documents, Marianne represents everything important to France.  This feminine symbol was created to embody the break from the old tradition of kings and monarchy and to embrace modern Republican ideology.  Her image has changed over the years at the hands of many masters and under the influence that was spurned from her most prevalent need of the moment.  Marianne has gone between a more conservative look that embodied reason to a more aggressive look that embodied.
