Description
According to Mostly Maps, this “map with view in the foreground of the Exodus scene, depicts the encampment of the 12 Tribes of Israel around the enclosure containing the Ark of the Covenant. In the foreground, Israelites gather manna fallen from the heavens. A letter key identifies the tribal encampments and other major sites.”
