Statue of Zeus at Olympia

The Statue of Zeus at Olympia was a giant seated figure, about 42 ft tall, made by the Greek sculptor Phidias around 435 BC. A sculpture of ivory plates and gold panels over a wooden framework, it represented the god Zeus sitting on an elaborate cedar wood throne ornamented with ebony, ivory, gold and precious stones.
