7 Wonders Of The World, Mausoleum
Photograph - Photograph
This tomb was built about 350 BC at Halicarnassus for King Mausolus of Caria by his widow, Artemisia. It was one of the seven wonders of the world. Designed by the architect and sculptor Pythis, it was richly adorned by Scopas and other noted sculptors. So great was the fame of this tomb that to our own day all large and imposing burial places are called 'mausoleums' after the ancient king whose bones rested here. This picture is an ideal restoration from the ruins.
