The Alif Red statue was a large and very valuable sculpture. It was a piece of evidence in Miles Edgeworth's investigation into the murder of Akbey Hicks. The real statue has red eyes while the fake has yellow eyes.

Alif and Hicks

A photograph of the Alif Red statue on display in Europe.

The statue was originally kept in a Borginia museum, but was intended to be flown on iFly Airlines Flight I-390 from Europe to Los Angeles to be showcased in the United States. However, as part of a scheme by an international smuggling ring, the real red-eyed statue was never loaded onto the plane in Borginia, and during a stopover in Zheng Fa, a fake yellow-eyed statue was put onboard instead — all unbeknownst to the statue's art dealer. An aid to the smuggling ring would fabricate a certificate stating the statue was loaded onboard in Europe to prevent any suspicion.

Akbey Hicks, an Interpol agent investigating the smuggling ring, was looking for proof that it was active on the flight, and asked flight attendant Cammy Meele to take him to the cargo hold. He discovered that the statue was not in the cargo hold and took a photo of the cargo hold missing the statue as proof that smuggling had occurred. However, in a panic, Meele shoved Hicks over a stair railing to his death. Though she managed to clean up the crime scene, she couldn't erase the evidence on Hicks's phone, and was eventually caught and arrested for the murder due to the investigative prowess of Miles Edgeworth.

The real Alif Red Statue?

An Alif Red statue was later found in the hidden 51st floor of the Grand Tower as one of the items being sold in the black market auction being held there. Although apparently matching Hicks's photograph of the original, Edgeworth was unable to verify as to its authenticity. He also mistakenly referred to it as the "Alice Red" statue, only to be corrected by his investigative partner at the time, Ema Skye.
