  1. There are lots of theories of how Colossus looked and was positioned but most reputable sources say that it did not straddle the entrance to the harbor (as that would have closed the harbor for the 12 years it took to complete the statue). Although it was very tall for the time, this depiction seems inaccurate as again most say that along with the pedestal it stood on it was about the same height as the Statue of Liberty. Still a cool idea to digitally recreate these wonders.

  2. It’s Nice

  3. Not at all accurate for the Colossus of Rhodes. It would have been impossible at the time to erect a statue with the spread legs supporting the weight of the upper body. It would be quite an engineering feat even today.

  4. There has been a lot of speculation on what the colossus of Rhodes actually looked like, no one really knows, but we can say for certain it was a depiction of a boy, or adolescent, and was almost certainly not wearing a speedo.
