This was in a box lot I bought at an auction..
It is very strange, but you would have to be able to see it closely..This is the best photograph I could get.Is it described anywhere as looking like this? I have not been able to find any pertinent dimensions.

It looks like it's supposed to be Herod's temple to me.

In the lower right it is signed in bold script-Solomon's Temple. You can see part of it on the right corner or I will upload the signature.
I have seen MUCH of all kinds of photography, but this guy has made this look like a tintpye, but it is too modern to be a tintype.
Kind of creepy when you look at it..

This and his signature is all that can be discerned for sure..
Strangest photograhic type I have ever seen, and I have seen much..

``

the photo looks like one of those old timey (sp?) Derogutypes,
you know those images taken around the civil war era

the model used was probably a stylized and assumed faithfully
rendered & ornate scaled model...
probably artistically crafted by some Orthodox Jews living in eastern europe....
Later on an image was made by someone the likes of RIPLEY fame
for the purpose of letting the world see an (almost)
Wonder of the Ancient World....

to me the elaborate & ornate "Temple" just drips with spiritualism,
and approximation of of what the 'Hanging Gardens of Babylon' might
have been styled like....that whole era from 1880s-1910s was creepy...

It looks a lot different than other depictions and much different than the current day site.

Yes, one can 'see' how much time was put into this..Sad how we do not have many 7 Wonders of the World left due to humanity, isn't it?
Udio, I cannot describe the correct 'feeling' I get when looking at it..
Kinda like takes you back to that time..make sense? There is nothing on Earth as ornate as this in this day that I know of..

Hmm....

Well I thought Solomon's temple was just the temple and this looks like a huge complex, which is what Herod's was supposed to be.

Who knows? I don't think anyone really knows exactly what Solomon's temple looked like other than the Biblical descriptions.

This is one depiction of the temple as it was back then:

Thanks for that link...The photo does seem TOO ornate compared to the one in the link..I did not realize there were so many housing structures close to the temple.

Are you sure that's not Herod's? The caption says:



"Whoever has not seen Herod's building - has not seen a beautiful building in his life." Babylonian Talmud Bava Batra 4:A




I found this, and the filename is solomon_temple.jpg:

I am sure you are right..we only have the bible to go by, I suppose..
There must have been amazement of any onlooker who saw anything as elaborate as this back then..Perhaps that is why there is nothing left of the ornate? How much time and patience did it take to make this model?

As far as I know, there's absolutely nothing left of Solomon's temple, not even a single brick etc.

Some people (not me
) even question whether it actually existed.

Here is a link of how it was supposed to look in Herod's time 70AD.
This man who took this picture dates it to 1000 BC.So who will ever know?

Does not the bible say that Solomons temple was built by master masons and could never be constructed like that again?
I am just fishing here, as I think I found an oddity that we can dis-cuss and have a good time posting on it..
I am open to all replies..It has me stumped.

That's definitely Herod's temple, not the original Solomon's. I believe that they called Herod's temple 'Solomon's' temple in the days that it stood. Now we call it Herod's for sake of differentiation. But the roundish looking buildings in the back left corner? That is Antonia, which was Herod's Palace.

Solomon's temple was laid out in the form of a man (albeit a rather robot-ish looking one) to signify the promise made by God to Abraham, which would make the innermost parts of man's mind the actual 'holy of holies.'

There is a better diagram somewhere on the net, showing this. I'll try to find one.

Okay, here is a somewhat better diagram of the floor plan of Solomon's Temple.
Notice in this picture, the two columns in front?

Those are named 'Boaz' and 'Jachim' and represent the ancestral line of Christ. If they are laid down they become 'legs' and the 5 lavers on each side of the temple, when arranged in a semicircle as intended, in front of the priest's quarters (which are the 'arms'), the lavers become the 'fingers.'

The two seraphim which guard the holy of holies represent the barrier between our mind and our tongues/mouths--only truth and God dwells in our inner minds--once it gets to the tongue, it's 'defiled.' It's all symbolic but very odd if it is meaningless. Odd, too, if it has meaning.

Strange thing has happened, I have hidden this from myself

Was looking in the usual places so I could get a better look.
Main reason I held onto it is because I collect any/all objects by anyone named Martz.They are all exemplary obscure artisans.
Now I will have to re-read the Book of Solomon to perhaps glean some answers..
Is it a relatively standard belief that Solomon's Temple never existed? help

I guess it depends on who you're asking...

The Jews almost certainly believe it existed. I personally believe it existed, and I once had a dream about it that convinced me....haunting dream, really.

I had never heard this as being a standard belief. Of course the people that doubt most things they cannot see probably doubt it.

But I have to say that I don't see how this is an example of a conspiracy in a religion, perhaps you could move it to that track? Or I could move the thread to the Faith and Spritiuality section and it can be discussed un-encumbered by the conspiracy angle?

What about Ancient & Lost Civilizations? I think it'd fit in nicely there.
