Hanging Gardens of Babylon

The Hanging Gardens of Babylon were one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World and were associated with the Mesopotamian kingdom of Babylonia. They may or may not have actually existed. They are described in several ancient sources but no actual location has ever been discovered. This diorama is one of several non-religious scenes recreated by Joseph Zoettl at the Ave Maria Grotto.
