If it took them this long to find a statue such as this, I still hold hopes that we can find some of the original wonders of the world, such as the Statue of Zeus at Olympia

And the Colossus of Rhodes

Even though stories say it was broken apart.

hmm at first I thought the globe the statue was holding was significant, but I didnt realize how many philosopher's believed the earth was a globe by 400AD



According to Wikipedia:


The idea of a flat Earth is that the surface of the Earth is flat (a plane), rather than the view that it is a very close approximation of the surface of a sphere. This was a common belief until the Classical Greeks began to discuss the Earth's shape about the 4th century BC.
