A reconstructed Arch of Palmyra, the original of which was the entrance to a temple for Baal in Syria, will reappear in Washington, D.C., as an “improbable” “symbol of peace and resilience,” according to Breaking Israel News.
The original in the Middle East was destroyed by ISIS in October 2015, but it was re-created by the Institute for Digital Archaeology using 3-D printing technology.
WND reported last year when the arch was in New York City and London, and later when it was placed outside a global summit in Dubai. More recently, it was constructed for the G7 Summit in Florence, Italy.
The replica of a Roman triumphal arch originally built in Palmyra, Syria, essentially has been on a world tour.
But the arch isn’t just a Roman ruin. It was originally an arch for the Temple of Baal, a pagan god repeatedly mentioned in the Old Testament. The rites of Baal were marked by child sacrifice and ritual prostitution.
BIN reports the organization that re-created the monument says it will be on display in Washington Sept. 26-30.
