310 long tons is about two times as heavy as The Statue of Liberty (without base)
In other words, it's 2.2 times the weight of The Statue of Liberty (without base), and the weight of The Statue of Liberty (without base) is 0.45 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Liberty Enlightening the World, a.k.a. La Liberté éclairant le monde) (total weight, including foundation)
The total weight of the Statue of Liberty — the Statue's copper and framework only, excluding the base — is roughly 140 long tons. The statue was designed using an optical trick known as "forced perspective" to make the statue appear proportionally correct when viewed from its base and is, in actuality, disproportionately large at the top.
