1. How would you describe the wonder?

I would describe the wonder as a church of the past as people used to pray to these gods and believed in them as people do today in church to god.
2.What condition is the wonder in today?

The wonders condition is in a bad state as there are only a few columns remaining compared to the amount it had and the roof with all the statues on.
3. How would of it looked differently in the past?

The wonder would of looked differently in the past as all the statues and the columns would have been in “mint” condition and would look sharp.
4. Who built the wonder and why?

Phidias or Pheidias was a Greek sculptor, painter and architect, who lived in the 5th century BC, and is commonly regarded as one of the greatest of all sculptors of Classical Greece, and was made in recognition of the Greek god Zeus.
5. Where and when was the wonder built? How was it destroyed?

435 BC at the sanctuary of Olympia, Greece. The wonder was destroyed by a fire in the 5th century.
6. What is your opinion on the original design?

I like the original design as it was a sign of what could be built. It had a nice look to it and was simple.
