...Actually, Bartholdi copied his brother's face (Jean-Charles) for the statue.
Or so some say. I've only seen photos of his brother bearded, so that makes it more difficult to determine for me. Most "authorities" say Bartholdi used his mother's face and I definitely see a resemblance there, so I tend to think that's probably more accurate.
