Some Ghanian fishermen have been trending after videos of them building a giant ark went viral online. Although the structure is still a work in progress, its sheer size is evident from a video circulating on social media.

Remarkably, the builders rely on manual labour and primitive tools, such as hammers, to bring their vision to life. The hands-on approach adds a unique element to the project, showcasing the dedication of the workers involved.

However, there is uncertainty about whether the contemporary ark shares the same dimensions as the legendary and religious ark, as the specific measurements are not currently available.

Biblically, in Genesis 6:15 (New International Version), the dimensions of Noah's ark are given. It states

"This is how you are to build it: The ark is to be three hundred cubits long, fifty cubits wide and thirty cubits high."

As the construction progresses, more details may emerge to shed light on this fascinating endeavour, so we can all confirm if it's actually Noah's ark or not.
