Some of you may know of my interest in the Ark of the Covenant. Its the special "box" that God had Moses make to house the 10 commandments. I am making a replica of it. Its going to be a life-size model(actual size) of it. If you have seen the movie Raiders of the Lost Ark. It will hopefully look identical to that when I am finished.
Below are some pictures of some of the pieces I have. The pieces shown other than the gold side panels are made of a resin material. The actual box part and lid will be made out of pine wood and other types of wood. The whole thing when built will be painted gold. I still have to get the carrying poles yet though. I have enough pieces for all 4 sides of the ark, I just didnt put them all in the photograph.
The first picture shows the pieces. They are the leaves for the lid molding, the mercy rail for the mercy seat, pine feet for the legs of the ark, side gold panels depicting the desert scene, and the 2 cherubs that sit atop the mercy seat. I had to take 2 pictures of the cherubs, those are my prize possession. The final pic is what I hope to have it look like when completed
