Indiana Jones And The Raiders Of The Lost Ark, Ark of the Covenant Mercy Seat Cherubs

replica movie prop

A pair of golden cherubim facing one another crown the Ark's lid, forming the kapporet or 'mercy seat' meant only for the Lord, as described in the Book of Exodus. Belloq and the Nazis remove the kapporet and open the Ark, hoping to uncover the powers hidden within, only to lose their lives and mortal souls for the transgression.

 

Fullsize hollow resin cherubs, rotocast under vacuum, with vacuum-metalized gold finish. Taken from an original, with crisp accurate details, representing a step up from many earlier replicas.

 

From sskunky.  Vac-metalizing by UK firm VMC Limited, who did work for Raiders and Star Wars.
