Modern technology gives us many things.

What would the 7 Wonders of the Ancient World look like today?


Imagine if the Colossus of Rhodes, the Statue of Olympian Zeus and the rest of the Wonders of the World had not been destroyed and existed today, as they did thousands of years ago when they were first built.

Η AI has done just that, recreating historical buildings structure in modern society with crowded tourists τραβούν with their smartphones.

Only one of the seven wonders survives today, the Pyramid of Cheops (the Great Pyramid of Giza), with the rest being lost over time due to wars and natural disasters.

Using it midjourney, η intelligent intelligence "resurrected" the 7 Wonders of the Ancient World, giving the world a chance to take a fresh look at them.

The 7 Wonders of the Ancient World:

  • The Colossus of Rhodes
  • The Pyramid of Cheops
  • The Hanging Gardens of Babylon
  • The Statue of Olympian Zeus
  • The Lighthouse of Alexandria
  • The Mausoleum of Halicarnassus
  • The Temple of Artemis in Ephesus

The Colossus of Rhodes

Ο Colossus of Rhodes was an amazing feat of engineering and construction, and the statue rose 30 meters above the port of Rhodes. The giant statue, which took about 12 years to build, was made of copper plates and depicted the Sun god.

Ancient works s depicting the Colossus of Rhodes show the statue standing at the entrance to the harbor, but researchers have determined that such a feat would be impossible.

Instead, the god stood on a pedestal near the harbor entrance, welcoming visiting ships. An earthquake destroyed the statue, which survived for less than a century after its completion in 282 BC.

The Pyramid of Cheops

The Pyramid of Cheops (the Great Pyramid of Giza) is the only wonder of the ancient world that exists today located in Egypt and is still one of the most popular tourist attractions in the world. Ancient Egyptians spent 20 years placing stones weighing up to 2,5 tons each, which were dragged by slaves at the behest of Pharaoh Cheops

The AI ​​has restored the pyramid to its original form, covering it with glistening white limestone that has now been lost over time.

The Hanging Gardens of Babylon

According to ancient texts, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon featured elaborate courtyards, magnificent water features and floating plants. However, stories are the only evidence that this rich oasis existed.

One text specifically argued that the Babylonian emperor Nebuchadnezzar built the gardens in the Babylon province of Iraq for his wife Amytis. However, there is no mention of them in any text written by the emperor or his wife.

According to legend, the gardens would be located about 50 miles south of Baghdad in Iraq. If the gardens existed, they must have been razed after their conquest by the Achaemenid Empire in 539 BC.

The Statue of Olympian Zeus

The Statue of Olympian Zeus was created by the famous sculptor of the time, Phidias around 430 BC. and was placed as a cult statue in the Temple of Zeus at Olympia.

The impressive statue is believed to have been completely destroyed and then looted in 426 AD. after the entire temple was set on fire. According to another version, it was taken to Constantinople by Theodosius and placed in the palace of a Greek Christian eunuch, where it remained for about 60 years, along with other great works of art, until 475 AD, when it was destroyed by a great fire. Finally, according to the Roman historian Suetonius, the Roman emperor Caligula had ordered it to be taken to Rome and changed , giving him the form of emperor, which he did not, however, because the ship waiting in the harbor to load him was struck by lightning and burned.

The Lighthouse of Alexandria

The most famous 105m high lighthouse of antiquity stood on Pharos Island in the port of Alexandria in ancient Egypt.

It was a complex construction designed to display the prowess of global intellectual capital while revealing its mathematical and geometrical foundations.

The lighthouse was built by Sostratos the Cnidian engineer, architect, son of Dexiphanous, also an architect. The Lighthouse of Alexandria remained in operation until its complete destruction by two earthquakes in the 14th century AD.

The Mausoleum of Halicarnassus

The Mausoleum of Halicarnassus was built for Mausolus, ruler of Caria, an ancient region of Asia Minor. The building was so impressive that the name of the late king became the general word for important funerary monuments.

The construction was a mixture of Greek, Near Eastern and Egyptian design principles. During the excavation of the tomb, remains of oxen, sheep and birds were found which were allegedly the remains of a "farewell" feast for the permanent resident of the Mausoleum.

It was built in 350 BC. in present-day Turkey and was destroyed after a series of earthquakes in the 13th century.

The Temple of Artemis in Ephesus

Artemis is the Greek goddess of purity, hunting, wild animals, forests and fertility and her Temple in Ephesus was built and destroyed three times.

The first to tear it down was Herostratus, who burned it to become famous. Next came the Goths, who destroyed the city while passing through to escape the Romans.

Finally, a Christian mob destroyed the Temple in AD 401, leaving the foundations and a single column – which is still visible today.
