This colossal sculpture is of Kurdish author Mubarak Ben Ahmad Sharaf-Aldin (1169 - 1239), also known as Ibn Almustawfi. He was a wunderkind of history, language and literature.

His sculpture was originally installed at the citadel entrance under the Saddam regime, and was relocated as part of the citadel's de-Arabization in the 2010s.
