|Various parts of the head, arms, and legs|
of the Colossus of Constantine (c. 280–387)
can be seen in the courtyard of the Capitoline
Museum in Rome. Those body parts were
carved of marble; the rest had a brick core and
wooden framework (possibly clad in gilded
bronze) that didn't survive +/- 17 centuries.
Still, I'm grateful to be able to see
what's left of this once-40-foot-tall statue.
