Bronze statues of two Yemeni lions to return home Monday
[16/October/2010]

SANA'A, Oct.16(Saba)-The General Authority for Antiquities and Museums is to receive on Monday bronze statues of two Yemeni lions after a restoration and display journey lasted a full year in the Louvre Museum in Paris, France.

Head of the Authority Abdullah Ba-Wazir said that two committee have been formed to examine and match the two statues and to complete the procedures of receiving and displaying them.

A special celebration would be held on this occasion in cooperation and coordination with the French Total Company, which contributed to financing this scientific project, Ba-Wazir added.

He pointed out that the restoration and display of the Yemeni statues at the Louvre Museum came under an agreement signed between the Authority and the Museum in October of last year.

The two lions statues belong to the National Museum in Sana'a, and the Museum of Antiquities in the city of Ibb, Ba-Wazir told Saba adding that they have attracted the interest of the Louvre's visitors for their historical value that prove the deep-rooted creativity of Yemeni people.

The lion statue of the National Museum ( 67 cm length, 66 cm width, diameter of 22.6 cm) dates back to the first century BC, while the other statue of the Antiquities Museum in Ibb ( 40 cm length, 37 cm width) dates back to the period between the second and the third centuries BC.

Ba-Wazir valued the cooperation of the Yemeni embassy in France and the officials of the Louvre Museum in France for their efforts and role for the success of the transfer of these two statues, as well as their role in promoting the relations of cooperation between the Authority and the Louvre Museum.
