The completed statue was formally presented to Ambassador Morton at a ceremony in Paris and de Lesseps announced that the French government had agreed to pay for its transport to New York. The statue remained intact in Paris pending sufficient progress on the pedestal. Consequentially, the statue was disassembled and crated for its ocean voyage.
