The fragile reliefs were planned to be stored safely in the Nemrud Museum. Replicas had to be made and to replace the originals on the terrace. The Berlin Gipsformerei has the original casts of Humann-Puchstein. They were asked to make these replicas. The first one was the relief of the Lion Horoscope. The replica was commissioned and ready for transportation to the Nemrud in 2004.
