Scale Model of the Ancient Tower of Babylon

Our experienced artisans can construct extremely life-like scale models of just about anything. We can create a scale model of buildings, either already in existence or something that you plan on building. It can be any kind of building or landscape that you have in mind. For instance, if you wanted to make a movie about ancient Babylon, its famous Hanging Gardens or the Tower of Babel (pictured here) we can build a scale model that would convince any viewer that itis the real thing. These models can also be used as museum exhibits or just as art pieces in your home or office building. Some may want a scaled representation of Babylon and it's surroundings for religious purposes, such as a display at a church or temple. All that remains of the original ancient famed city of Babylon today is a mound of broken mud-brick buildings and debris in the fertile Mesopotamian plain between theTigris and Euphrates rivers. The city was originally built upon the Euphrates, and divided in equal parts along its left and right banks, with steep embankments to contain the river's seasonal floods. Available historical resources suggest that Babylon was at first a small town which had sprung up by the beginning of the 3rd millennium BC. The town flourished and attained independence with the rise ofthe First Amorite Babylonian Dynasty in 1894 BC. Due to the importance of Babylon in its time as well as the stories in the Bible the word "Babylon" in various languages has acquired a generic meaning of a large, bustling diverse city. As such, the word "Babylon" is used for various entertainment events or buildings.The Hanging Gardens of Babylon are considered to be one of the original Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. They were built in the ancient city of Babylon. The gardens were supposedly built by the Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar II around 600 BC. He is reported to have constructed the gardens to please his homesick wife, Amytis of Media, who longed for the trees and fragrant plants of her homeland. The gardens were destroyed by several earthquakes after the 2nd century BC. The Geek form of the name Babylon is from the native Akkadian Bab-ilim, which means "Gate of the god", which summarizes the religious purpose of the great temple Tower of Babel. In Genesis 10, Babel is said to have formed part of Nimrod's kingdom. It is not specifically mentioned in the Bible that he ordered the tower to be built, but Nimrod is often associated with its construction in other sources. People have been fascinated with this early Biblical city since BC and this city is still referenced regularly to this day. Our skilled modelmakers can construct convincing scale models for whatever you purpose is, whether it is a replica of an existing or historic building or structure or one in your imagination. Just provide us with you ideas, drawings, photos and sketches and we can work closely with you to construct exactly what you request.
