Depicting the Ark’s Passengers: Shem’s Wife

by Ark Encounter on September 3, 2014

In this series of blog posts, we want to give you a glimpse into the thought process behind how we’ll portray the people on board the Ark. Recently, we gave a sneak peek of some of the concepts for Noah, so this series will focus on the other seven passengers. As explained in the introductory article, we want you to see the rationale behind the decisions we’re making for this one-of-a-kind attraction.

Shem’s Wife

Shem’s wife is in the line of the Messiah and is married to the man we plan to portray as the godliest of Noah’s sons. This probably won’t affect her appearance, but it could help us determine the various activities we show her performing.

As for her appearance, we really don’t have anything to go on. She can be fairly average in size but still physically fit. She will have middle-brown skin, brown hair, and brown eyes.
