“The overrestoration remains glaringly visible. At Lion’s Gate, the entrance to the ghost city, the restoration’s aggressive layering of new stone altered the configuration of the beloved logo of the city, the lion relief. The restoration removed the cross, which was formed by coloured diamond-shaped stones, surmounting the animal figure. For many observers, this desacralization constituted intentional removal of a cross understood as a campaign to erase signs of Christian Armenian presence in Anatolia”
