37. 1735 Plan of Twelve Tribes of Israel

Johann Christoph Weigel

37×46cm Copper plate on Paper Two-way framed

Original Hand-coloured plan of the Twelve Tribes of Israel camped around the Tabernacle by Johann Christoph Weigel in 1735. Nearly three hundred years old! This authentic antique hand-coloured plan depicts the Twelve Tribes of Israel encamped around the Tabernacle housing the Ark of the Covenant. The Tabernacle is finely drawn at the centre, drawing our attention to it. Weigel portrays a camp of symmetry and order with the tents arranged in concentric squares. The Levites are in the middle; remaining tribes farther out. While each tribe has its own clearly-defined territory, the foreground is filled with activity in what appears to be an oasis. All work to provide basic necessities is depicted; sowing and reaping, animal husbandry, the sundry activities needed for sustenance of the tribes.
