Colossus Of Rhodes (I)

This song is by Rick Wakeman and appears on the album The Seven Wonders Of The World (1995).

The Colossus of Rhodes was an enormous statue of the sun-god Helios which was built in 304 B.C. in Lindos,
The main harbour of the Island of Rhodes, by the people as a thank you to their god for protecting them against invasion.
In 370 B.C, a massive earthquake sent the colossus tumbling to the sea and it was seemingly lost forever.
And even today the search goes on in the harbour for traces of the giant statue.
