The NUMERO UNO, LADY LIBERTY HEAD 2010, Mix media & acrylic on Canvas. The Statue of liberty series has a very important history in the artistic life of PETER MAX.  EXCERPT from Washington Post, July 2, 1982: His latest project is saving the Statue of Liberty. "I like doing things with the White House," says Max, who was there a few weeks ago with Chrysler president Lee Iacocca, who presented President Reagan with one of six Statue of Liberty paintings Max created at the White House last July 4. "We came up with the idea of forming a commission to renovate the Statue for her 100th birthday. It was passed through Congress, and Iacocca was selected as chairman. We're going to try to raise about $100 million to clean the statue, fix leaks, whatever it needs." Max calls himself "America's own most patriotic artist.
And this  I don't doubt this for a minute.

This is the back of the canvas, a PM art work all by itself!
The typical girl's face is especially nice.
