About this item
About this item
Discusses the seven wonders of the world, including the purpose they served, and how these magnificent structures were constructed without modern technology.
"The Hanging Gardens of Babylon. The Colossus of Rhodes. The Great Pyra-mid at Giza. For centuries these names have inspired wonder and mystery. They are but three of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Most of these masterpieces of human achievement have long since crumbled into dust. But their legacy survives, and these triumphs of human vision, architecture, and creativity have become the stuff of legends."
In the "Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, " Lynn Curlee ponders the questions that have fascinated researchers and archaeologists for decades: What purpose did these structures have for the societies that built them? How did they achieve the means necessary to construct such intricate and innovative temples and statues? Mr. Curlee investigates and illustrates how these Seven Wonders must have appeared at their peak.
With extraordinary paintings and a moving narrative, Mr. Curlee tells the story of some of mans greatest feats and explores the timeless desire of cultures to leave a permanent mark on the Earth.
