Temple model

Model for Temple of Olympian Zeus, cork

This model made of cork to simulate the sandstone gives you some idea of how massive and grand this temple was and would have been had it been completed. What you can’t see is that because the walls were sold for the cella (naos) and the only light coming in on the sides is through the windows the figures are standing in, the roof was open in the center. This temple was about twice the dimensions of the Condordia Temple.
