The statement added: The Replicas were created using modern technologies that employ high definition optic scanners, in order to get every detail of the statues correctly. Experts from the foundation will accompany the statues of the Lamassus to install the statues in the University of Mosul, where they will be homed, near the historical Ashurbanipal library.
