The Seven Wonders of the Ancient World - Phidias' statue of Zeus, Olympia, Greece // It is believed that, since the weather at Olympia was very humid, the statue required great care with oil so that the ivory wouldn’t crack and was constantly treated by Phidias himself and his descendents, over the centuries.
