Aron Kodesh with Compound Curve

This Aron Kodesh was purchased in the Spring of 2014 for Jewish Belgravia, London, England.  Custom Ark Base was made as well.

Completely Solid Wood Aron Kodesh features carved doors build with compound curve.  The compound curve solid wood doors are made by gluing various pieces of wood together in order to achieve the desired shape.   They were then planed by hand and sanded on both sides to a smooth round over shape.  The Ark was carved over 150 hours by hand with a knife.  Glass inlays, which are custom made in the studio, represent the Twelve Tribes of Israel.  The columns on the sides are glued rounds, lathed, and carved by hand to represent a date bearing palm tree.  The ark inside measures 150cm high x about 120cm wide with a shelf to house up to 6 sefer torahs.  The Aron Kodesh is designed to be hung floating on the wall or with a modest bracket built to match the ark from below.
