Ark of the Covenant Statue
Good quality generally & conforms to everything advertised. (The reproduction inside of the 10 Commandments tablet(s?) seems a little bogus, however.)
This Ark of the Covenant Statue is of good quality generally, & conforms to everything (appearance, inside and out; size; make-up; etc.) as advertised in both catalog and website ad photos and blurbs. The reproduction inside, however, of the 10 Commandments tablet(s?) seems a little bogus, & not high-(thick-?) enough to really represent the whole of it (them?; i.e., not big enough to contain all 10 commandments, or multiple tablets), even though I already knew or assumed that from the inset photo in the ads. Of course, that fact is only noticed if one opens the lid to the inside. (Other Customers: Note that Toscano also sells another version of the Ark, in 2 sizes, the larger of which is somewhat more expensive and maybe more realistic, tho as a collector I've got both.) They're all very protectively packaged for shipment, by the way.

I was surprised at the size. I expected it to be smaller but I'm glad it was not. The detail is exquisite. I am very well pleased with my purchase.

Exactly as descibed, A must have item to any home.
This item was exactly was described and pictured. The only negative is that I had to wait 4 months for the backorder, but the wait was well worth it.

This product needs a slight adjustment
Overall, the product is good but I would recommend one slight design change and that would be to either shorten the poles or make it so they can be removed or detached so as to allow the piece to fit in spaces more easily without the prospect of damaging the piece. I would also like to see an option for a larger size or sizes offered for this piece. Other than that,I have enjoyed it very much. Thanks!

Accurately depicted and ornately made.
This ark of the covenant representation for the Hebrew God, Yahweh, is accurately depicted according to the description given in the Old Testament.
The color was a little off from the photo on the website, it came a bit more copperish tone than gold, but a can of metallic gold spray paint fixed that very nicely. I highly recommend this piece. It is a central focal point in my ancient Egyptian collection. Though not Egyptian itself, the ark came out of the historical Egyptian context circa 1,500 BCE.
Care must be taken not to damage the carrying staves, but otherwise solid and durable.

For my Indiana Jones doll
I bought this very cool Ark to go along with my 1/6 scale Indiana Jones action figure. I really love the design and it looks to be good quality. I think the only flaw is that the carrying poles aren't removable. I'm packing for a move and though I think I did pretty good packing it safely, I am concerned they will break. It's made of a resin, so hopefully it's tougher than it seems. Overall it's a great item!

I like it. Exactly what I wanted, down fall, I did not pay that much, it does feel like plastic that can break. I got what I paid for.

My Indiana Jones doll needed an Ark
I bought this ark after wanting it for a long time. It's an adorable piece! The size is perfect for my 1:6 scale Indiana Jones action figure. The lit is removable and the design and attention to detail is lovely! I'm very pleased!
