In True Lies, the terrorist group hides a nuclear warhead inside archeological figures. How did they do this without damaging or destroying it?
Did no one notice the modifications, or at least to the point of suspecting something?

It's pretty clear that they did damage the artifacts to hide the weapons inside. They just made superficial covers to hide what was inside.

The statues and weapons have been in the possession of Khaled & June for a month (I think a period of four weeks is mentioned). Then they were shipped, by sea, in crates.
June is a dealer in antiquities and was paid $2m to obtain the statues. They had plenty of time to make the modifications and return the statues to the appearance of normality.
Assuming the weapons were secreted in the statues before shipping, which seems likely, then there would only be a cursory inspection by a customs agent on loading.
June is a known dealer, importing goods and artifacts from all the Middle East (it's stated)...this would be just another shipment as far as the outside world is concerned.
