Exodus 26:1-2 - Coverings of The Tent of the Tabernacle - First Covering

Description does not continue with the rest of the artefacts, but rather jumps over to the description of the Tent of the Mishkan:

Exodus 26:1-2
1 Moreover thou shalt make the tabernacle with ten curtains of fine twined linen, and blue, and purple, and scarlet: with cherubims of cunning work shalt thou make them.
1 ‏וְאֶת־הַמִּשְׁכָּ֥ן תַּעֲשֶׂ֖ה עֶ֣שֶׂר יְרִיעֹ֑ת שֵׁ֣שׁ מָשְׁזָ֗ר וּתְכֵ֤לֶת וְאַרְגָּמָן֙ וְתֹלַ֣עַת שָׁנִ֔י כְּרֻבִ֛ים מַעֲשֵׂ֥ה חֹשֵׁ֖ב תַּעֲשֶׂ֥ה אֹתָֽם׃



The color palette of the First Covering of the Tent of the Tabernacle was that of a sunset\sunrise twilight.

Similar to this:


Or this:


And the Cherubim (Angels)... Four-winged(4) human-like creatures....


Word כרבים (Cherubims) meaning - The Guardians...

2 The length of one curtain shall be eight and twenty cubits, and the breadth of one curtain four cubits: and every one of the curtains shall have one measure.
‎2 ‏אֹ֣רֶךְ׀ הַיְרִיעָ֣ה הָֽאַחַ֗ת שְׁמֹנֶ֤ה וְעֶשְׂרִים֙ בָּֽאַמָּ֔ה וְרֹ֙חַב֙ אַרְבַּ֣ע בָּאַמָּ֔ה הַיְרִיעָ֖ה הָאֶחָ֑ת מִדָּ֥ה אַחַ֖ת לְכָל־הַיְרִיעֹֽת׃



So there were ten(10) parts for the First Covering, each being 28 cubits long and 4 cubits wide...
