Just a little something I stumbled into drawing while testing the new Broadcast mode. The Colossus was a giant bronze statue erected in Rhodes, and said to stand astride the harbour entrance. A little bit of physics says that is highly unlikely, though, and it much more likely stood to one side of the entrance. It was still considered one of the 7 wonders of the ancient world.

This got me off on a tangent reading about the seven wonders of the ancient world. They're all so mysterious. —  magicalhobo
