Soane's Ark: Building with SymbolsThis winter, Sir John Soane's Museum marks the tercentenary of the foundation of the first Masonic Grand Lodge in London with an exhibition that explores Soane's work for the Freemasons. Soane's Ark: Building with Symbols presents a beautiful recreation of the monumental Ark of the Masonic Covenant, a piece of ritual furniture that was built in honour of the unification of Ancient and Modern Masonic Lodges in 1813. The piece once stood in The Great Hall, a glorious interior designed by Soane for the Freemasons. Neither of these stand today, with The Great Hall lost during a remodelling in the 1860s and the Ark destroyed by a fire in 1883. As well as the recreation, which has been created by woodcarvers Houghtons of York, the exhibition will also bring together a number of works that present a view of Soane's broader engagement with Freemasonry.

 

About Sir John Soane's Museum

An appealingly higgledy-piggledy treasure trove of artefacts, the extraordinary Sir John Soane's Museum elegantly located on Lincoln's Inn Fields is well worth an exploratory rummage. Lurking in nooks and crannies within the sprawling rooms and halls of neo-classical architect Sir John Soane's former residence are over 30,000 architectural drawings and antiquities.
