This amazing woodcut is a true gem of baroque art. It depicts Ark of the Covenant also called the Ark of the Testimony. It was made in 1753 by the artist Isnard from Strasbourg. It shows not only a depiction of The Ark of the Covenant, but also a German description of it according to the bible. The woodcut is very fine and a true piece of art.

The Ark of the Covenant is a gold-covered wooden chest described in the Book of Exodus as containing the two stone tablets of the Ten Commandments. According to various texts within the Hebrew Bible, it also contained Aaron's rod and a pot of manna.
