Why Lady Liberty Holds a Torchstatue-of-liberty

Best Answer: Liberty’s left hand is clutching a tablet of law, inscribed with the date “July 4, 1776” in roman numerals. It’s in her left hand, because that hand is closer to her heart. In the other hand she is raising a torch, so that the world can see the light of freedom.
