The Statue of Zeus at Olympia
The Statue of Zeus was an iconic Greek sculpture and one of the most iconic wonders of the ancient world. Created by the renowned sculptor Phidias, it was erected in the Temple of Zeus in Olympia, Greece around 435 BCE. The statue depicted Zeus, king of the gods in Greek mythology, seated on a magnificent throne. It was crafted primarily from ivory panels mounded to a wooden core, with Gold and other precious materials adorning the statue.
The statue stood at an impressive height of around 42 feet and was a symbol for the power and grandeur that was often associated with Zeus. It served as a focal point of worship and a testament to the Greeks' devotion to their gods. Sadly, the statue was lost in a fire in the 5th century CE. Today, only its descriptions and depictions on ancient coins and artworks remain, reminding us of the greatness and splendor of this extraordinary ancient wonder.
