Wondering about the 7 Wonders of the Ancient World? We wondered too! This list is too, too short! by far!, but here they are: Ancient Greek Lighthouse of Alexandria, Egypt; Babylonian Hanging Gardens of Babylon; Ancient Greek Artemision Temple at Ephesus, Turkey; Ancient Greek Halicarnassus Mausoleum (here we’re depicting the Amazonomachy frieze or Contest of Greeks and Amazons); Ancient Greek Temple of Zeus at Olympia (this is the pediment sculpture of Theseus Battling the Centaur Eurytus —or better! The Battle of the Greeks and the Lapiths —voila! Centauromachy); Ancient Egyptian Pyramid at Giza, Egypt; and not to be outdone, the Ancient Greek Colossus at Rhodes, Greece!
