The Cutty Sark was almost destroyed by fire, and was rebuilt. I would
say it a visitor attraction (of very high quality) that it is a
facsimile of the craft that sailed the oceans. I have visited both
before and after the fire (and rebuilding). Some timbers would also have
replaced before the fire and also planned replacement during the 2007
conservation closure period when the fire took place.
Sir Arthur Evans also rebuilt an artifact, Knossos, and he used
concrete, which was not around in the era 1380–1100 BCE.
Has something has been "created" by a mind? I would say yes, to both. In
the case of the Cutty Sark, the ship was placed in a new "dry dock" so
that visitors can view the hull (for example).
