Is it moral to buy this item?

I really like it but I am worried about the morality of purchasing it.

It seems to be a historical landmark item, and I wouldn't say it is inappropriate. If it were a traditional sacramental image, maybe, but for that, I'd say there isn't a grave concern.

But if you have reservations, I'd wait. No need to be in doubt all the time.

As I reviewed the listing, I thought a Statue of Liberty one would be cool, and it turned out, they make one.

I would be more scrupulous about using the names for the four points of the compass than buying this item (hint: they're named after the four dwarves of Norse mythology that hold up the four corners of Midgard-earth).
