Ark of The Covenant “Trinket Box” Statue
This gorgeous Ark of The Covenant Statue has fine details and is sculpted and handcrafted to the finest detail in cold cast metal (Bronze pewter) finish. The Ark of the Covenant (the Ark of the Testimony, or the Ark of God), is the most sacred relic of the Israelites. It consisted of a pure gold-covered wooden chest with an elaborate lid called the Mercy seat. The Ark is described in the Book of Exodus as containing the 2 stone tablets of the Ten Commandments. According to New Testament Book of Hebrews, it also contained Aaron’s rod and a pot of manna. The biblical account relates that, approximately one year after the Israelites‘ exodus from Egypt, the Ark was created according to the pattern given to Moses by God when the Israelites were encamped at the foot of Mount Sinai. Thereafter, the gold-plated acacia chest was carried by its staves by the Levites approximately 2,000 cubits (approximately 800 meters or 2,600 feet) in advance of the people when on the march or before the Israelite army, the host of fighting men. God spoke with Moses “from between the 2 cherubim” on the Ark’s cover.
According to the Book of Exodus, God instructed Moses to build the Ark during his 40-day stay upon Mount Sinai. He was shown the pattern for the tabernacle and furnishings of the Ark, and told that it would be made of wood to house the Tablets of Stone. Moses instructed Bezalel and Aholiab to construct the Ark. The Book of Exodus gives detailed instructions on how the Ark is to be constructed. It is to be 21⁄2 cubits in length, 11⁄2 in breadth, and 11⁄2 in height (approximately 131 × 79 × 79 cm or 52 × 31 × 31 in). Then it is to be gilded entirely with gold, and a crown or molding of gold is to be put around it. 4 rings of gold are to be attached to its 4 corners, 2 on each side, and through these rings staves of wood overlaid with gold for carrying the Ark are to be inserted, and these are not to be removed. A golden lid, the kapporet (translated as “mercy seat” or “cover”), which is ornamented with 2 golden cherubim, is to be placed above the Ark. The Ark is finally to be placed under a veil to conceal it. Ark of The Covenant “Trinket Box” Statue sizes: 11 inches / 28 cm x 4.5 inches / 11.5 cm x 7.5 inches / 19 cm.
