Ark of the Covenant LIFESIZED replica. The 2020 Model

Welcome to the Ark 2020 webpage.  This is the Ark of the Covenant version 2, the Ark 2020 model! 

 

 Compared to my original rendition, this version boasts these features:

 

  • MUCH MUCH EASIER TO ASSEMBLE
  • HAS OPTIONS FOR USING MIRRORED ACRYLIC PANELS for the mercy seat top AND ALL 4 SIDES of the trunk.
  • The parts are SHARPER and MUCH MORE ACCURATE!

 **This *MAY* open the possiblity for shipping the Ark kit OVERSEAS since this can fit into a smaller box.

 **original ark webpage is HERE.


The Ark 2020 model will be ready for pre-order in November or December 2019.  Email for details. impervium@hotmail.com

 

HOW IT WAS MADE:

 

What differentiates the Ark2020 from my orignal replica, is the design of it's construction.  The MERCY SEAT was carefully engineered as 4 separate rails with each leaf individually printed and molded in place on the top and bottom of each rail.  This not only makes for much sharper definition, but it makes assembly much easier.  As separte rails, this also allows for easier gold chroming.  The corner seamlines are hidden by contoured corner leaves.  The flat TOP of the lid is now deconstructed, leaving the double row of leaves as separate pieces. This allows you to use a gold mirrored sheet of acrylic as the flat top. 

 

The newly engineered parts were all made first as digital sculptures that were printed, cleaned and molded.

The corner posts, instead of being completely separate parts, were completely re-sculpted and printed as SINGLE units.  The corners are now ONE PIECE including the post, the finial and the feet.

 

  In other words, wherever it made the Ark easier to assemble/look more accurate, parts were either taken apart, or combined.  You'll see what I mean about the blending of engineering changes:
