Noah's Ark - Genesis.  Hebrew characters from Genesis VI, verse 14:  'Make thee an ark of gopher wood: with rooms shalt thou make the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch. And this how thou shalt make it; the length of the ark three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits and the ehight of it thirty cubits.' (The word Teva means ark and tevot is plural or means words - connection with Thomas Ades composition 'Tevot'.)  (Photo by Culture Club/Getty Images)
