Colossus of Rhodes brought to life through Artificial Intelligence

·

Can you picture the Colossus of Rhodes, the Statue of Zeus, and the other ancient Seven Wonders of the World just like they were thousands of years ago when they were first made?

According to The Daily Mail, this is now a reality thanks to Artificial Intelligence (AI).

Each of these historical structures have been recreated in our modern world using AI. The statue of Colossus, which towered 100 feet above the harbour on the Greek island of Rhodes, looks the most impressive of all of them.

The giant work of art was brought back from history with the use of imagine generator “Midjourney.”

In old pictures, the Colossus of Rhodes is shown standing with its legs on each side of the Rhodes harbour entrance. However, researchers say that this would be impossible. Actually, the statue stood on a pedestal close to the harbour entrance, greeting ships that came by.

Sadly, an earthquake caused the statue to fall, and it didn’t last long. It was built in 282 BC and only survived for less than a century before it was gone.

Apart from the Colossus of Rhodes, AI has also recreated the other ancient Seven Wonders of the World. Among them is the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus, the Temple of Artemis at Ephesus and the Statue of Zeus at Olympia.
