At more than 150 staggering meters, Palla and his team's vision is that the new statue isn't a direct copy of the original. The goal is to evoke the same emotion in new visitors as it did for those who saw the original, and to drive tourism. They intend the statue to be a museum that houses "the hundreds of archaeological findings forgotten in the storerooms, " something they believe will "have a 'Domino' effect in the economy."

What's most fascinating about this project is how they plan to get it all done. Taking a page from Antoni Gaudí's book (you know, the guy behind the Sagrada Família who funded his project through private patrons), the team is planning to fund the entire project by crowdsourcing it through the Internet.

The idea looks fascinating, but there's no word on when or how they're going to get the ball rolling on this just yet. Basically, don't hold your breath on this resurrection happening any time soon. In the meantime, feel free to watch their video on the project repeatedly. If the vision they have doesn't inspire you, then the dramatic music that accompanies it certainly will.

Assuming that you are arabs living in an Arab country then it is obvious that you are used to wear conservative dresses. You can very well wear what you usually do but you can also wear anything you like or feel comfortable to wear.
If your sister does not want to wear bikini or shorts she is entitled to that and she can wear anything she fancies.
One note of interest. If you plan to visit churches or monasteries a proper long dress for women and long trousers for men is the acceptable attire.
