Samiri and its derivatives

When u googled "Samiri" at, u will certainly find tens to hundreds of the same picture as shown above.. But the funny thing is, they all have different captions.. These are some of the captions that i managed to find so far:-


"Patung Anak Lembu Samiri"

"Lembu Samiri di Bukit Nabi Musa St. Catherine"

"Lembu Samiri"

"Belakang tu ukiran lembu samiri"

"Gambar Lembu Samiri"

"Kesan tinggalan Lembu Samiri"

"Kesan patung emas samiri"

"Anak lembu emas Samiri"

"Lembu yang dibuat oleh samiri"

"Patung Lembu Samiri"

"Patung Samiri"


So the question is, is that thing really "Patung lembu Samiri"?

Or should i ask first, who was Samiri?
Was he the calf himself?
Or was he the person who made the calf?

What actually happened to the calf that Samiri made from Bani Israil's ornaments?

As far as i know, this is what the Quran says:

(Moses said to Samiri) "And look at your god to whose worship you kept (so long); we will certainly burn it, then we will certainly scatter it a (wide) scattering in the sea. "
[Tahaa 97]


So when the Quran itself says that the body of the calf that had mooing sound is burnt and scattered in the sea, why is the calf still there on the mountain? And the most important question is, why are those people still referring it as "Lembu Samiri"?
