The Colossus of Rhodes is considered as one of the Seven Wonders of the ancient world. It was a huge statue that depicted the god Helium. He was built by Haris of Lindos in the 3rd century BC. He was about the same size as the Statue of Liberty in New York, except that the second stands on a higher base.
The statue is a creation of the sculptor Haris of Lindos, a student of the famous Greek sculptor Lysippus, which began in 304 BC and took 12 years to be completed.
It was about 33 meters of bronze skeleton mounted on stone columns.
His exact location has not been confirmed, however, according to a theory, he was in the port of Lindos and boats were passing between his legs, while other sources report that he had been built in the city of Rhodes and was looking at the harbor. The huge statue had a tragic ending. 66 years after the completion of its construction, a devastating earthquake struck it in debris into the sea.
