The Rhodes Statue, which was built during the time of the Greek kingdom, is one of the Seven Wonders of the World at this time. The statue was built on the island of Rhodes and it is estimated that it was built between 300 and 400 BC. The Rhodesian sculptor fully assumed its role as a gate of the port at Rhodes island. The sculpture, which appears to be a bridging mission due to its structure, is among the seven wonders of the world. According to a few customs, the two scaffolds are tied together and several ships are thought to have passed under it. However, it is said that the two colons of the resultant sculpture are on the scaffolding and are not suitable for the technological and construction conditions  of that time. However in the past several workings which seem impossible have been done so there are still confirmation voices for the existence of such a sculpture.

  1. Hi, I would like to know if I can use the photos of the seven ancient wonders of the world for my YouTube channel; I’m developing a cultural series of video and I would like to talk about this topic too. Of course, I would credit your website as source of the images and put a link under my video to redirect all the viewers here, so that they can see your site too. Thanks a lot and have a good day.
