The skeleton of the statue is made of flat iron bars curved into shape to create the three-dimensional figure. These "ribs" are attached to the copper surface with "saddles," which are copper bands that overlap the ribs and are riveted into place. The idea is that these saddles are flexible, and thus the different parts of the statue can flex slightly in the wind, and stand up to time better. There are around 1,500 saddles on the statue.
