The Ark of the Covenant was a chest that the Hebrews carried the actual Ten Commandments in. It was put in the Temple of Solomon in Jerusalem at about 1000 B.C. It stayed there for many years before being discovered. It is featured in Indiana Jones sets. The object contains many gold pieces and is made up of 17 parts. It also featured in the set 7622 Race For The Stolen Treasure. The ark in this set was innacurate because it was an undetailed gold treasure chest with green, white, red and blue jewels inside. There is also a similar inaccurate ark in 7683 Fight on the Flying Wing.
