Exodus 26:29 - Gold Overlay of the Boards of the framework of the Tent of the Tabernacle

Here I found an interesting set of images that shows replica of the Tabernacle. Just like most replicas of the Tabernacle, this one is not particularly accurate nor of high quality. However, one of the things that this replica does indeed show is the Golden Overlay of the Boards of the framework of the Tent of the Tabernacle.

As you can see from this image, even with such low quality of Overlay of the Boards that this replica employs, you can still notice that the entire structure, especially inside, would be reflective.

The design of the Tabernacle highly relies on these gold plated reflective Boards and for many different reasons. One of such reasons being that this would "expand" the structure, making it feel (from the inside) less claustrophobic and more grand and spacious.

And here are the couple of my renderings that show what gold plated reflective Boards would do for the framework of the Tent of the Tabernacle.

On this image, you can see the golden Altar of Incense - notice the reflections on the adjacent wall...

And here is another look inside the Holy Place of the Tabernacle. Again, notice how reflective Boards would create a so-called "infinity mirror" room, which would make relatively small space appear much larger and more spacious...
