The statue of Zeus was built in Olympia.
The statue of Zeus was a gift to the god. It was intended to show the love and loyalty to the god Zeus.
You will need to be more specific. I think you mean the famous one at Olympia that was destroyed in a fire (it is debated if the fire was at the temple or whether the statue w…as in Constantinople at the time)
Nobody is really sure what happened to the statue, some say it was carried off to Constantinople, where it was destroyed in a fire in 475AD. Others say it was destroyed …when the temple in which it sat was destroyed in 425AD.
The statue of Zeus was in Olympia, Greece. It was destroyed by fire.
erm greece i think. its called olympia
Libon designed the temple and Pheidias was asked to build a big statue for Zeus.
Supreme Ruler of all the Gods/Goddesses in Greek Mythology.
the famed sculptor Phidias built the statue in 435 BC.
There have been hundreds of Zeustatues. Perhaps you mean the most famous one: in the Zeus temple at olympia. That is where it was created.
What is the intended function of any statue? *sigh* Representation for purposes be it remembrance, worship or historic. A Greek named "Phidias" made the statue, in ancient… era when Greeks worshiped those gods, and the statue of Zeus is there for the same reasons a statue of Athena was made. Worship. The same way you find statues of Jesus.
