WONDERS OF THE ANCIENT WORLD: The True History Revealed

D. ANTONOPOULOS & ROD GREEN    Book Number: 82245    Product format: Hardback

In May 1605 the author, an illustrator, printmaker and explorer set off to travel the world and arrived in Greece, the land of his forefathers, where he bought a donkey. Set in a ruined hall he found a hidden secret written by his forefather. 'We humbly pray that Hermes will ensure the prosperity of Antonopoulos silk traders, our family and business, throughout the known world. In thanks, we offer him seven tokens from the seven wonders of the world: The Great Pyramid of Giza, The Hanging Gardens of Babylon, The Statue of Zeus at Olympia, The Temple of Artemis at Ephesus, The Mausoleum of Mausolus at Halicarnassus, The Colossus of Rhodes and The Lighthouse of Alexandria...' What the young artist found on his incredible journey is experience through a series of booklets, lift-the-flaps, and fantastic paper engineering, reproducing 'facsimiles' of his travels all the way across the Pacific to the north coast of Java, including a shining shard of stone he found in the eye of one of the statues on the ground near the Moai. 'It will serve as a suitable tribute to Hermes from yet another fabulous new Wonder. A fragment of bloodstone from the Jaguar Throne at Chichen Itza appears on the next page and there is wonderment and sparkle and learning as we travel along the Great Wall of China, the Temple at Prambanan and along the Silk Route. A beautifully illustrated travelogue illuminating ancient marvels of Darius's epic voyage. Colour.
