Tables of the Covenant Lions and Stars of David

I already wrote several times that the Magen David has a tendency to appear in the company of other important Jewish emblems, that compete with it on the birthright, like the Menorah, lions, Herzl etc. Here it is seen along with the Ten Commandments, the Tables of the covenant.
On 11 July 1948 David Ben Guryon suggested that the symbol of the Israeli state would be two lions holding the Tables of the covenant, just like here.
