The Greeks are at it again

Plans are afoot to rebuild the Colossus of Rhodes..

One of the "seven wonders" of the ancient world, the giant statue of Helios was destroyed by a strong earthquake centuries ago and its material--bronze and iron--scavenged for other uses.

The original Colossus was similar in size and construction to the Statue of Liberty.
