When the Israelites left Egypt through the parting of the Red Sea the Shekinah glory cloud led them to Mount Sinai where God gave them his 10 commandments, but God also gave them the exact specifications for the Ark of the Covenant. God revealed to Moses that the Ark was a physical representation of his throne in heaven. It was a small box made of wood overlaid with gold, on its side were rings with poles for transporting. Along the top was a crown of gold, and the lid (mercy seat) was made of solid gold, there were two standing cherubim with wings outstretched who looked down upon the blood that was sprinkled on the Day of Atonement. The Ark of the Covenant was entirely different than anything in ancient Egypt, and it was completely God's design. (See Ex. 25:10-22)
