The Ark of the Covenant also known as the Ark of the Testimony or the Ark of God is a mythological artifact from the Book of Eximus of the Hebrew Bible. It was notably featured in the film Raiders of the Lost Ark.




The Ark of the Covenant is a gold and acacia box which was created by the Israelites who crossed the Red Sea to flee enslavement in Egypt. The Ark was made to carry the stone slabs of the Ten Commandments in-addition to Aaron's rod and a pot of manna.
