This is a 12 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World – The Statue of Zeus at Olympia. Each of the slides are editable so you can modify the slides if you need to.
The Statue of Zeus at Olympia was a 40-foot-high, ivory and gold, seated statue of the god Zeus, king of all the Greek gods. Located in the sanctuary of Olympia on the Greek Peloponnese Peninsula, the Statue of Zeus stood proudly for over 800 years, overseeing the ancient Olympic Games and being acclaimed as one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
In 393 CE, Christian Emperor Theodosius I banned the Olympic Games. Three rulers later, in the early 5th century CE, Emperor Theodosius II ordered the Statue of Zeus destroyed and it was set on fire. Earthquakes destroyed the rest of it.
