古代世界的七大奇迹()& # 8211的照片

更新时间:2018-09-11  责任编辑:admin

Seven was considered a magic number by the ancient Greeks。 So when it came to naming the most impressive constructions mankind had achieved at the time, it was a must that they settle on just seven。 The historian Herodotus and the architect Callimachus of Cyrene made these lists, but their writing remained only as references。 Long after that, people would begin making lists of 7 medieval or modern wonders, but I’;ll write about that a bit later (stay tuned for those)。 So without further ado, here they are, in no specific order:

Colossus of Rhodes

Status: destroyed
A bronze statue of the sun god Helios st***ing 105 feet high at the mouth of Rhodes harbor would probably catch your eyes, right? Erected between 292 and 280 BC, it lasted until it hit by an earthquake in 226 BC。 The statue’;s knees snapped, and the mighty god fell down to the ground。 Still, the remains were so impressive that many people used to travel there to see them。 The design and appearance of the Statue of Liberty are based on what the Colossus was thought by engineers to have looked like。 It inspired even Shakespeare, who alluded:
Why man, he doth bestride the narrow world
Like a Colossus, and we petty men
Walk under his huge legs and peep about
To find ourselves dishonorable graves

Statue of Zeus at Olympia

zeus

Status: destroyed
The ancient Greeks were amazing。 What could be more imposing than a 40 feet high gold imposing figure of the supreme god? Well, actually it was made of wood and just covered with gold and ivory, but still, the amount of craftmanship is astonishing。 It was made by the famed classical sculptor Phidias, who is believed to be the greatest of all Classical sculptors。 It’;s still unsure how it was destroyed: some believe that it perished with the temple in the 5th century AD, others argue that it was carried off to Constantinople, where it was destroyed in the great fire of the Lauseion。 Still, what’;s more is how Phidias was inspired to build this。 People asked whether he had climbed Mount Olympus to see the god, or if Zeus came down to see him。 He simply replied that he created him from Homer´s Iliad:
He spoke, the son of Kronos, and nodded his head with the dark brows,
and the immortally anointed hair of the great god
swept from his divine head, and all Olympos was shaken。

Hanging Gardens of Babylon
