The Parthenon is more than just a magnificent building. Every marble statue, every graceful column, is an expression of a civisation whose three great values still speak to us today: democracy, humanism, balance. This book tells of the rise of Athens, culminating in the construction of the great temple on the Acropolis. It captures the human stories and the technical details behind the building of the Parthenon. It talks about the story of the world's most famous temple, its art and architecture. It is illustrated throughout with detailed colour artwork by Yuan Lee. It also features historic artwork, archive photographs, gatefold illustrations, timelines, glossary, maps and index. "Wonders of the World" is the award-winning series that tells the stories behind humanity's most extraordinary creations.
