3. The Arch of Triumph (Formerly Arch of Palmyra)
It has been confirmed. The replica of the Arch of Triumph (Palmyra Arch) will be arriving in New York City on September 19th, on the heels of World Heritage Strategy Forum at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts from September 9-11. The reproduction is a model of the 1,800 year old arch, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, which was destroyed by Islamic State Militants last October. The 20-foot, 20 ton model, made in Italy from Egyptian marble, is intended as an act of defiance, and to show that restoration is possible through new digital technology.
