I don't know where else to post this, as I couldn't find a response or comment section on the thread I was viewing. But I have some info I couldn't find anywhere via search engine or the guide itself for The Golem quest.
I followed each step that the wiki stated, but when I reached Curator Haig Halen, the option to chat about the statuette would not appear for me. So, I looked it up, and found one thread that said if I still had the certificates from Shield of Arrav in my possession, he would not speak to me. I went to my bank and destroyed them and then returned to Haig - still no option for chatting about the statuette. I decided to retrace my steps. To fix this problem, I went back to Elissa at the dig site and spoke with her about the quest. She mentioned the statuette but did nothing to progress the quest. Then, I went back to Haig and selected the new chat option pertaining to the statuette.
I couldn't find any information on the matter so I hope this makes it to somewhere useful.
