A "copy" is the result of reconstructing an original. This term can be used for almost all everyday objects but, in connection with historical preservation, mainly refers to reproductions of artworks. There may be many reasons for creating a copy:

Multiple copies may be used as a way to advertise the original.

The copy may be used as an alternative to a lost original.

The copy may be put on display instead of a valuable original.

Copies can be made from the same material as the original, but many other alternative materials are also possible. Materials available to us include stone, artificial stone, concrete, plaster, ceramic, plastic, wood and metal.
