This vessel is a 32″ replica of Noah’s Ark a classic representation of his Biblical masterpiece, also known as “Tevat Noah.” Noah’s Ark is the vessel from Genesis by which God saves Noah, his family and all the world’s animals from the flood. According to Genesis God gave Noah plans to build the ark before the flood and instructed him to board the ark with his family and the world’s animals where they would be for 150 days before coming to rest on Mountains of Ararat.
The structure of the ark (and the chronology of the flood) are homologous with the Jewish Temple and with Temple worship. Accordingly, Noah’s instructions are given to him by God (Genesis 6:14–16): the ark is to be 300 cubits long, 50 cubits wide, and 30 cubits high. These dimensions are based on a numerological preoccupation with the number sixty, the same number characterising the vessel of the Babylonian flood-hero. Its three internal divisions reflect the three-part universe imagined by the ancient Israelites: heaven, the earth, and the underworld. Each deck is the same height as the Temple in Jerusalem, itself a microcosmic model of the universe, and each is three times the area of the court of the tabernacle, leading to the suggestion that the author saw both ark and tabernacle as serving for the preservation of human life. It has a door in the side, and a tsohar, which may be either a roof or a skylight. It is to be made of Gopher wood, a word which appears nowhere else in the Bible – and divided into qinnim, a word which always refers to birds’ nests elsewhere in the Bible, leading some scholars to emend this to qanim, reeds. The finished vessel is to be smeared with koper, meaning pitch or bitumen.
Now you can get this beautiful Pirate Ship for your home or office. Our master craftsmen handcrafted this nicely detailed model from scratch using historical photographs, drawings, and original plans. We selected the finest woods and material to build this model. Also, we use the “plank on bulkhead” construction method which is similar to the building of the actual ship. Each model requires hundreds of hours to finish and must go through a demanding quality control process before leaving the workshop.
This model comes standard with a solid wood base and it’ll make a perfect gift for home or office decorator, boat enthusiast or passionate collector.
