The statue was made at Carrara, Italy, and was offered to the city of Larnaka by Iakovou Dimitriou family in 1963. It is an exact copy of the original Artemis complex that is part of the permanent collection of the Vienna Art History Museum. Artemis complex was found in Cyprus at the end of the 19th century, was secretly sold to a Cypriot collector in Paris and ended up in the Art History museum.
