THE WORKSHOP OF FIDIA IN OLYMPIA

The workshop of Phidia in Olympia

This interactive virtual experience transports us to the workshop of the sculptor Phidias in ancient Olympia. The workshop includes –in an accurate reconstruction– the famous statue of Zeus and the sculptor's tools, materials and molds used to construct it. Young visitors become the sculptor's helpers and actively participate in the creation of the huge statue, by using virtual tools to apply the necessary material onto the statue and add the finishing touches. Through this exciting activity a lot can be learnt about the tools, the material, the procedures and the creative process involved in the creation of one of the Seven Wonders of the ancient world, but also about ancient Olympia and the Olympic Games. Accessible at: Tholos of Foundation of the Hellenic World (FHW), Athens, GR. Developed by: Foundation of the Hellenic World (FHW), Athens, GR.
