 The Workshop of Phidias in Olympia

This interactive virtual tour to the workshop of the sculptor Phidias in Olympia presents -in an accurate representation- the famous statue of Zeus and the sculptor's tools. Young visitors become the sculptor's assistances and work together in order to complete the statue. They participate actively, while at the same time learning valuable information about the tools, materials and the way they are processed, but also the methods through which the materials are applied in the construction of the statue. Therefore, their visit is transformed into an exciting experience!
