"Make The Dwelling itself from ten panels of tapestry woven from fine twisted linen, blue and purple and scarlet material, with an angel-cherubim design. A skilled craftsman should do it.
The panels of tapestry are each to be forty-six feet long and six feet wide.
Join five of the panels together, and then the other five together.
Make loops of blue along the edge of the outside panel of the first set and the same on the outside panel of the second set.
Make fifty loops on each panel.
Then make fifty gold clasps and join the tapestries together so that The Dwelling is one whole.
