AI Recreates the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World

Artificial intelligence (AI) has the potential to bring the ancient Seven Wonders of the World, such as the Colossus of Rhodes and the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, back to life.

AI, using the Midjourney image generator, has successfully recreated these historic marvels in today’s world.

Except for the Great Pyramid of Giza, various factors such as wars, the decline of civilizations, and natural disasters have led to the loss of these structures over time.

Great Pyramid of Giza

The AI images also feature the Great Pyramid of Giza, a wonder that still captivates tourists to this day. Built in the early 26th century BCE, it took twenty-seven years to complete. Ancient Egyptians, under the command of Pharaoh Khufu, hauled stones weighing up to two and a half tons each.

As time passed, much of the smooth, white limestone casing was removed, reducing the pyramid’s height from 146.6 meters to 138.5. AI has restored its iconic white limestone casing at the top, giving it an original look.

Statue of Zeus at Olympia

A colossal forty-foot-tall gold and ivory statue of Zeus once graced a temple in Olympia, Greece. It was crafted to compete with those in Athens. The eleventh-century Byzantine historian Georgios Kedrenos made note that the statue was carried off to Constantinople, where it was destroyed in the great fire of the Palace of Lausus in 475 AD.

Colossus of Rhodes

The renowned one hundred-foot statue, portraying the Greek sun god Helios, was an impressive engineering marvel that graced the harbor of the Greek island of Rhodes.

A significant moment in its history occurred in 226 BCE, when an earthquake struck, causing the colossal statue to collapse at its knees after having stood proudly for fifty-four years.
