A reconstruction of an ancient Iraqi statue destroyed by Daesh (ISIS) was unveiled in London's Trafalgar Square Wednesday. Made from date syrup cans, the artwork will stand for two years on the empty fourth plinth in the British capital's central square as a monument to the destruction of Iraqi culture since the 2003 U.S.-led invasion.London Mayor Sadiq Khan said the artwork was an "act of resistance" against Islamic extremists and acts of destruction.He claimed that 20 million people would walk past the statue during its two-year run, making it the world's most visible piece of contemporary art.The statue stands 4.5 meters high, weighs 6,000 kilos and is made from 10,500 empty Iraqi date syrup cans, representing a once-renowned industry laid low by the wars in Iraq.
