Two rare busts rescued from Daesh's (ISIS) destruction of the ancient city of Palmyra will soon be heading back to Syria, after a painstaking restoration in Italy.Hundreds of important heritage sites have been sacked or destroyed during the five-year conflict, including the first-century temples of Bel and Baalshamin in Palmyra.The two funeral busts, which are to be returned to Syrian authorities by the end of the month, were recovered by regime soldiers when they initially retook Palmyra.The busts, of a man and a woman, date to the second and third centuries and were brought to Lebanon before being transferred to Rome, Rutelli said.A team of five specialists worked on the restorations for a month, focusing in particular on the faces.
