The SuralArk is a design in Socrates Sculpture Park in New York by Austin and Mergold. Looking extremely similar to an overturned ship, the sculpture interprets the story of Noah's Arc and asks viewers to think about the past and present while standing beneath the installation.

Overall, the design is not meant to have a purpose, but instead make people ponder about life, and even any great floods that could happen in the future. The material used for the making of the ship is similar to that of a house found in the suburbs of America, which helps to modernize this biblical story to a contemporary audience. Even those who have no interest in religion or the history of Noah's Arc will still be impressed by the sheer mechanics that went into the design.
