The Statue of Zeus at Olympia was a giant seated figure, about 13 m (42 ft) tall, [1] made by the Greek sculptor Phidias in circa 430-422 BC at the sanctuary of Olympia, Greece and erected in the Temple of Zeus there. A chryselephantine sculpture of plated ivory and gold panels over a wooden framework, it represented the god Zeus sitting on an elaborate cedarwood throne ornamented with ebony, ivory, gold, and precious stones, and was regarded as one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World until its eventual loss and destruction during the fifth century AD.[2] No copy of the statue has ever been found, and details of its form are known only from ancient Greek descriptions and representations on coins.
