The Temple Of Artemis At Ephesus - by Delta Seven Studios

The Temple of Artemis was one of the Seven Marvels of the Ancient World.

O Templo de Artemis era uma das Sete Maravilhas do Mundo Antigo.


The Ruins of Artemis Temple
Known to historians as the Artemisian, this giant Greek temple was a wonder in it’s time not just because of it’s size but because of its beautiful decoration and statuary.
Other temples were built hoping to emulate it’s beauty but none ever really achieved the same notoriety as the Artemisian.
This quote was written by Antipater of Sidon :
“...But when I saw the sacred house of Artemis that towers to the clouds, the [other Wonders] were placed in the shade, for the Sun himself has never looked upon its equal outside Olympus.”

Artistic Interpretation of Artemis Temple
Conhecido pelos historiadores como o Artemisian, este templo gigante grego era uma maravilha de sua época não apenas por causa de seu tamanho, mas por causa de sua bela decoração e conjunto de estátuas. Outros templos foram construídos com a esperança de igualar a sua beleza, mas nenhum conseguiu chegar perto da notoriedade do Artemisian. Esta citação foi escrita por Antípatro de Sídon ..."Mas quando eu vi a sagrada casa de Artemis que se eleva até as nuvens, as outras Maravilhas foram colocadas à sombra, pois sob o Sol nunca se viu nada igual a não ser no próprio Olimpo (a morada dos deuses)". - leia mais no site da Delta Seven Studios (Inglês).

  1. Hello,
    Thank you for marvelous model.
    I just wanted to correct one thing, if you don't mind. The picture you put as today's photo of temple does not belong to wonder. It is also temple of Artemis but not in Ephesus, in Jordan. From wonder of ancient world only one column is left and the picture can be seen here:

    Best Regards...
