Note to readers: 

The research and production of the ancient ships web was done as an ancillary activity by Comstock Sculpture Studio and as part of the background studies in preparation for creating a concept of what the Ark of the Covenant may have looked like. For further explanation see the introduction to the Ancient Ships web. Due to my research and study I concluded the Ark was probably an archetype of many of the Egyptian Funerary Shrines which also often carried the spiritual laws from the Egyptian Book of the Dead.

The tradition of enshrining spiritual law can be traced to as early as the Building of the Stepped Pyramid. 1000 thousand years after the building of the Stepped Pyramid during the time the Hebrews Exodus Period this tradition had been fully transformed into the papyri of Egyptian Book of the Dead. Moses would have been familiar with this tradition due to being raised in the House of Pharaoh. The Ten Commandments also appear to be a subset and simplification of the spiritual laws outlined in the Egyptian Book of the Dead.
