Description

This extraordinary wooden Ark, decorated with original delicate gild carvings, is one of the oldest Holy Arks in the world. The shape of the Holy Ark recalls the traditional representation of the facade of the Temple in Jerusalem, which housed the Ark of the Covenant; it is designed like a building and features architectural elements such as columns and capitals.

The Torah Ark and its two monumental cathedrae (chairs) come from the Scuola Grande Synagogue in Mantua and were made in 1543, according to an inscription that appears on one of the cathedrae: “The Great Synagogue here in Mantua, Nissan (5)303” [1543].
