The chryselephantine statue of Zeus, work by the famous sculptor Phidias, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, was in the heart of the temple of the god of gods.  Made in 432 B.C, it was seven times larger than life and together with its base reached a height of 12.40 meters.  The nude parts of the body were in ivory, the gown, the beard and the hair were made of gold.  His head bore a silver olive tree crown.  Transported to Constantinople in 395 A.D, the statue was destroyed by a fire in 475 A.D.
