    Colossus of Rhodes

    created by aspn on 2014.02.04

    Main Section
    One of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, the Colossus of Rhodes was constructed between 292 BC and 280 BC. Approximately 30m tall and built as a victory celebration, the statue was meant to resemble the Rhodians' patron god, Helios. The statue was destroyed in an earthquake 56 years later in 226 BC.

    This iconic depiction of the statue straddling the harbor is in all likelihood not historically accurate, however, it is the most interesting and architecturally beautiful of the poses. Additionally I realize that this model of the statue is not to scale (in my interest of conserving time and effort) but as a nice side effect the size highlights the statue over the rest of the set.

    From yet another angle. The object in the statue's right hand is a torch. The object in the statue's left hand is meant to resemble a bow. I'm extremely open to suggestions for the creation of a better bow.

    Finally a view from the city/hill top behind the statue

    As stated previously, I'm open to most building suggestions and changes. Just leave them in the comments.
