Colossus of Rhodes statue Featured Print

Colossus of Rhodes statue

Colossus of Rhodes. Historical artwork showing the vast bronze statue of the Greek sun god Helios (later identified with Apollo, the god of light), at the entrance of the harbour at Rhodes, a Greek island in the Aegean Sea. The statue, standing 33 metres tall, was completed in 282 BC and stood for only 56 years before being destroyed in an earthquake. Even the broken remains were so impressive that people travelled from afar to see them. They remained in Rhodes for around 800 years until the Saracens invaded and sold them, supposedly transporting them to Alexandria on the backs of 900 camels. This engraving is from Maerten van Heemskerck's 16th century book Seven Wonders of the World, and reproduced in The Picture Magazine, 1894
