Noah's Ark rebuilt in the Netherlands Animals in the ship Man Builds Noah's Ark
Noah's Ark (Hebrew: תיבת נח; Classical Hebrew: Teyvat Noaḥ) is a large vessel appearing in the Book of Genesis (chapters 6--9) and the Quran (surahs Hud and Al-Mu'minoon). These narratives describe the construction of the ark by the Patriarch Noah at God's command to save himself, his family, and the world's animals from the worldwide deluge of the Great Flood.
In the narrative of the ark, God sees the wickedness of man and is grieved by his creation, resolving to send a great flood to cleanse the Earth. However, God chooses a man named Noah and "counted it righteous to him" to live and preserve mankind through Noah's family. God then proceeds to give Noah instructions on how to build the ark. When Noah and the animals are safe on board, God sends the Flood, which rises until all the mountains are covered and all life on Earth is destroyed. At the height of the flood, the ark rests on mountaintops, before the waters recede and dry land reappears. Noah, his family, and the animals leave the ark to repopulate the Earth. God places a symbolic rainbow in the sky and makes a covenant with Noah and all living things, by which he vows to never again send a flood to destroy the Earth.
Johan's Ark or Ark van Johan is a Noah's Ark-themed mobile structure built by Dutch creationist Johan Huibers. The replica is half the length of that given in the Bible, 150 cubits or 70 metres. Johan's model is 30 cubits high and 20 cubits wide. The Bible reports Noah was commanded to build an ark having a length of 300 cubits, a width of 50 cubits, and a height of 30 cubits.
Huibers built the structure in the river port of Schagen, 45 km north of Amsterdam, in one and a half years time; in 2007 he opened the doors to visitors. After a few months the structure was towed by tugboat through canals in the Netherlands and moored in the harbours of Rotterdam and Arnhem.
Huibers states that he followed details given in Genesis during construction of the Ark. While the Bible specified that the Ark had to be built from the unknown gopher wood, the replica is a steel frame skinned with American Cedar and Pine and built on top of a steel barge. The Ark contains models of various animals, and other displays. Huibers spent more than €1 million on the project.
Big Ark (number 2)
As of 2010, Huibers was building a second, full-sized (137 m / 449 ft) boat-shaped structure in Dordrecht, due to be opened in June of that year.[dated info] This "Ark" is carried on a platform made up of 25 LASH barges and Huibers intends to apply for a coaster's seaworthiness license and is invited in one years time to be in London for the 2012 Summer Olympics as well as visiting other locations in Europe. The new Ark is partly financed by income from the first Ark as well as donations and loans.
