One of the most notable stories in the bible is the tale of Noah together with his family and how he built a very huge Ark and managed to survive a storm that has wiped out the rest of the civilization.
While it is a given that Noah was able to build such a huge vessel with guidance from God, this man tried to imitate him by making his own life-size replica of Noah’s Ark.
According to BuzzNick, a man in The Netherlands had a dream a few years ago that he was meant to create a new Noah’s Ark from the Bible. So he spent the next few years making it happen. The ark is now finished, and these images show just how massive it is!
This is the ark replica. It was created as close to the specifications in the bible as possible. The exact measurements are 410 feet long, 95 feet wide and it weighs in at 2,500 tons. This thing is massive!
Johan Huibers is the man behind this project. He reportedly had a dream that inspired him to take the extra mile and make it come to life. The ark was constructed at a cost of $1.6 million. It has since drawn hundreds of thousands of visitors as an attraction.
Impressively, the ark has 5 levels, with some having 75-foot tall chambers. There is even a media area for visitors to learn more about the ark. It even has its own restaurant.
In an effort to make the Ark closer to the description in the Bible, there are carvings of animals in two by two formation throughout the rooms of the ark. Animal carvings even include elephants and alligators.
Additionally, Johan plans to sail his ark halfway across the world.
Who would have thought that a real-life Noah’s Ark can be possible? Indeed, what a man can conceive, he can surely achieve! We applaud Johan for his undying effort to create such a wonderful masterpiece!
