Exodus 26:32 - Four Inner Pillars of the Tent of the Mishkan - Part 3

Exodus 26:32
32 And thou shalt hang it upon four pillars of shittim wood overlaid with gold: their hooks shall be of gold, upon the four sockets of silver.
32 ‏וְנָתַתָּ֣ה אֹתָ֗הּ עַל־אַרְבָּעָה֙ עַמּוּדֵ֣י שִׁטִּ֔ים מְצֻפִּ֣ים זָהָ֔ב וָוֵיהֶ֖ם זָהָ֑ב עַל־אַרְבָּעָ֖ה אַדְנֵי־כָֽסֶף׃

As the description states, there were also four(4) silver sockets for each of the four Pillars...

Each socket was made out of one(1) Talent of Silver(Ex. 38:27)...

Unlike the other silver sockets, these did not have a cut-out groove as they were not connected to the rest of the sockets of the Tent of the Mishkan.

And here is the comparison to the silver socket of the Board of the Tent(right) and to the one(1) Talent of silver (middle).

But just like the rest of the sockets, the Pillars' sockets were made hollow inside...

The Pillars were inserted into the sockets by parts: first, one semi-tubular part of the Pillar was inserted...

Then, the second...forming the inner Pillar...
