Mausoleum at Halicarnassus

The Mausoleum of Halicarnassis is one of the seven wonders of the ancient world still around. Few know what the mausoleum really looked like, but it is believed that the famous sculptor, Skopas, was responsible for parts of the decoration, but it was certainly extravagant. Today, the visitor can only see the remains of the building’s walls, as it was destroyed by earthquakes.
