Building the Tabernacle in Your Mind

What is the actual size of the Tabernacle? How thick are the planks? How do the covers drape over the structure? These questions suggest that the biblical text was composed not to facilitate the physical construction of a three-dimensional structure but to engender visualization, much like the texts accompanying the construction of mandalas.
