The Mausoleum at Halicarnassus or Tomb of Mausolus was a tomb worked somewhere in the range of 353 and 350 BC at Halicarnassus (show Bodrum, Turkey) for Mausolus, a satrap in the Persian Empire, and his sister-spouse Artemisia II of Caria. The structure was outlined by the Greek designers Satyros and Pythius of Priene. The Mausoleum was around 45 m (148 ft) in tallness, and the four sides were embellished with sculptural reliefs, each made by one of four Greek stone workers—Leochares, Bryaxis, Scopas of Paros and Timotheus.
The completed structure of the sepulcher was thought to be such a tasteful triumph, to the point that Antipater of Sidon distinguished it as one of his Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. It was crushed by progressive seismic tremors from the twelfth to the fifteenth century, the last making due of the six demolished marvels. The word sepulcher has now come to be utilized blandly for an over the ground tomb.
The magnificence of the Mausoleum was in the structure itself, as well as in the beautifications and statues that enhanced the outside at various levels on the platform and the rooftop: statues of individuals, lions, ponies, and different creatures in changing scales. The four Greek stone workers who cut the statues: Bryaxis, Leochares, Scopas and Timotheus were each in charge of one side. Since the statues were of individuals and creatures, the Mausoleum holds an uncommon place ever, as it was not committed to the lords of Ancient Greece.
