The wiki-article explains, how the figures of the so called Bactrian princesses relate with the Oxus culture.
These figures are today shown in  art exhibitions worldwide, be it in the French Louvre:

or the German documenta (2012):

Asmita has reconstructed some of the most beautiful figures of the Bactrian princesses as low-poly-mesh and framed them as acquirable 3D-art-pieces. They are displayed on a hill, which looks like a fresh archeological excavation.
