What are the Bible's »ark of the covenant« and cherubim? Raanan Eichler examines these objects with an abundance of visual comparative material, including finds from the tomb of Tutankhamun. He proposes solutions to a number of unsolved puzzles and offers a new explanation of the nature of the ark and the cherubim, arguing that they constituted a unique cultic focus in the ancient Near East.
